Just got a new high-end workstation at work, but the graphiscs card has two DVI slots (new video HD protocol) and we have only VGA monitors at the moment. The builder should have used a card (XFX) with VGA and DVI slots. But what's done is done. Mild inconvenience. So I quickly learned that there are such things at DVI to VGA adapters, whereby the VGA monitor plugs into the VGA (female) end, and the DVI (male) end plugs into the DVI slot on the card. DVI monitors are a little bit more expensive. Just something to consider when purchasing a new computer.
