Hello, i got a question or two about the monitors.

The one i currently got is

And im about to get a brand new pc which im gonna build myself. The CPU will be an i5 and the GPU is an GTX660. The problem here is that the GPU doesnt got any VGA slots. Does that mean i should upgrade my monitor or can i just use a VGA to DVI adapter on my monitor?

Will that result in the same quality?

You can indeed use an adapter, though I'd replace that monitor regardless for a superior quality display.

As long as my monitor can display 1080p and i don't bottleneck anything im fine with it for another year or two

You can use a vga to dvi apater, it's not optimal but doable. DVI is better than VGA, but if you have no choice go adapter.
