Dvi To Vga Adapter

I'm getting the 6600 gt ( bfg ) soon , but i just realized that the card have these connectors only ( connectors: dual dvi-i, hdtv / s-video out ). That means there is no vga connection. And what i have in my house is this 19' crt monitor. So shall i get a dvi to vga adapter or what ? And how much do these costs ? ( I think it's the adapter won't come with the box, here is the link for the card http://www.Bfgtech.com/6600gt.html ). Never saw a dvi to vga adapter and i don't know if i need one and how much do they cost. Thanks in advance guys !

Edit: sorry for the rush, i realized that a dvi to vga dongle is included in the box. Anyways to not make this thread totally trash, what is the main benefit for a dvi-i connector?

Vga Monitor For Dvi Port

I have a dell e177fp monitor that i want to set up as a second monitor. I already have another monitor using the only vga port on my system. Now there is a dvi port in my system also which could be used to connect a second monitor. Unfortunately, the e177fp monitor doesn't have a dvi port (neither does the other monitor). My question is, if i use a vga to dvi adapter to connect the e177fp to the dvi port, will this work?

Using Dvi / Vga Ports Simultaneously

My boss wants a new video card and dual monitor set-up. I've ordered 2 kds rad-7gs flat panel lcd monitors for this purpose, i think they use 15-pin d-sub vga connectors. Most of the video cards i've been looking at have multiple video out ports, however there are very few video cards out there with dual-vga ports. I'd rather get a better video card with 1 vga / 1 dvi out and just use a dvi-vga converter for the second monitor. I'm worried that i wouldn't be able to use both ports simultaneously. Is this possible? I've noticed on the spec sheets some of them list "dual monitor support". If that's not listed, should i assume that the ports can't be used simultaneously?

Monitor Won't Detect Vga, But Works Fine With Dvi

It's a hp w1707 if that helps. Today i'm getting some hdmi cables to hook my ps3 up to my monitor since all i have is a sdtv and can't afford to buy a hdtv. To make things easier on myself, i decided to go drag out my vga cables and hook that up to my computer, and hook my ps3 up to the dvi port so all i'd have to do is just switch the input back and fourth. That's when i ran into a problem. If i plug my vga cables in, it will not detect the display, but the second i plug the dvi into my video card (hd4870 1gig) it's fine again. I'm at a loss, as i said i just wanted to keep both plugged in and just switch between them, so obviously i've already tried switching input modes. I've tried restarting, i've tried setting my card to auto-detect displays (even though i know that's not the issue) i've tried setting my video card to force detection. I've tried having the screen auto adjust. None of it worked. The weird thing is the different results i get depending on the combo of buttons i push on the monitor and the cable(s) hooked up to the monitor itself. If both are unplugged from my comp, but plugged into my monitor, the screen will say no input detected. If both are connected and dvi is plugged in to my computer, it will work fine. If both are plugged into the monitor but vga in computer, it will say auto adjusting please wait, then will only have my background on the screen (no icons no mouse, and if i crtl atl and del the screen goes black) if only the vga is plugged into the monitor, it will say check video connections, if vga only is plugged into both the monitor and computer, it will go to sleep almost instantly.

Eyefinity With Dp To Vga Adapter

I was reading over on widescreen gaming forum that users have successfully utilized this:

http://www.Directron.com/apdpvga.html

To run a 3rd monitor off the displayport, as opposed to dropping 100+ on the bizlink dp to dvi adapter. For those of us planning to run 3x22", it doesn't look like there would be any sacrifice in image quality using vga rather than dvi. Just thought i'd pass it along. Kyle or brent, if you guys get a chance, i'd sure love some additional confirmation on this

Dvi To Hdmi Adapter Work ?

Someone i know wants a htpc. You know me i pick quality parts:p but im wondering. His sound system will be running off the tv (plugged into the tv. Atleast thats how i think it will hoook up). I remember people saying theses new video cards were going to have hdmi built in but all i see on the 2600/2400's elc is a dvi port. I dont see how you can send the sound signal out trough the dvi(video) port.

Where To Buy Active Dp-dvi Adapter In Uk ?

Well i finally did it, the sli gtx280s are being pulled tonight for the installation of the 5870 (crossfire eventually once drivers settle down) and i'm itching to try eyefinity. Now where the *** can i get an active dp-dvi in the uk, you us guys are so lucky they are available everywhere but they are not in stock anywhere here. Any us vendors that ship to the uk or europe based ones anyone could point me in the direction of. I cant get a dp version of either of my current displays (no 28" dp and i cant afford a 3008 and a 3007)

I never thought having a 30" 3007 monitor and a hanns-g 28" would become a disadvantage but when you are suddenly faced with having to have three the same it sure does so my eyefinity setup is likely to be based around smaller monitors (probably 28s) but i'll worry about that once i have my adapter.

Do I Need To Buy An Adapter For Hdmi Cable To Plug Into Dvi Port?

I bought a cable to connect my ps3 to my desktop monitor. It is a hdmi to dvi cable. My monitor has a dvi and d-sub port. Even though the cable i got says it is hdmi to dvi it will only connect to the d-sub port (the d-sub is smaller and blue and the hdmi is larger and white). Do i need to buy an adapter to allow the hdmi cable to plug into the dvi port or am i doing something else wrong entirely. When i turn on the ps3 nothing comes up. I tried holding the on button to reset the ps3 display settings to hdmi but nothing happened. I suspect i need to buy the adapter but i wanted to confirm before i go buy it. My monitor is a hanns g hi221d. I'm pretty sure my monitor should be compatible but i'm sure someone knows alot better than me.

Eyefinity Displayport Dvi Or Displayport Vga

This poll is for eyefinity owners who use a displayport adapter. My three lcds do not have any displayports. I will be running 3x 1680x1050, so svga should work. I will be purchasing a 5850 imminently and an adapter. Sapphire has failed in delivering their adapter by quoted timeframe (stated newegg will have it for sale by 1/9/10). I would like to know how many folks are out there using the active dvi adapter or the svga adapter. Please state the problems you're having (flickering, wake up, etc), if any. Please state the native resolution of the lcd you're using the svga adapter for and if it has any issues. There is a fellow at wsg who is having problems with the svga adapter at 1920x1080.

Built In Hdmi Or Dvi - Hdmi Adapter

Does it matter? I have a biostar matx 939 board with 3000+ venice with 7800gt and 1 gig of ram. I'm wanting to use this pc as a very light game machine (civ 4: colonization and other strategy, probably never fps cause i hate playing from my couch) and all purpose computer in the living room. I'm looking at a 4830 or so, maybe 4670 depending on price. Want to spend less than $80 - $90 shipped. I need the card to output sound. I want to run a single cable from the pc to my 47" 1080p tv which outputs sound via optical to a surround sound receiver. Will a card with no native hdmi out output sound, making the adapter worthless? Or?

I don't see any free shipping on 48xx cards with an hdmi port built in from newegg. Needs:

Play sound through hdmi
Light gaming
Eventually be able to play bluray discs (will eventually get a blu ray drive) (cpu will probably need upgraded though?)
$80-$90 shipped

Dvi-d Connector To Dvi-d Dual Link

Im looking at a graphics card that has a dvi dual link output. The monitors i am looking at list dvi inputs. I am assuming they are dvi-d single link. Can i use a single link cable on the dual link outputs? It looks like the single link just has less pins, are they compatible? I know i wont benefit from the increased resolution and such, but will it work, or do i need to look at adapters?

Dvi-i Vs Dvi-d Support

From what i understand, the "d" in dvi-d stands for dual link. It can transmit higher bandwidth. (Ok) i recently bought an alienware with 1920x1080x120hz resolution. This is connected to my custom tower, with an ati 4870x2 video card. Internet browsing looks real good, & games like cod-mw look great. Bf/bad company-2 is still having high-end compatibility. (Getting better )

Question: how do i know i'm getting "full" bandwidth, & not just running on dvi-i from the 4870x2 video card? I'm not concerned with the 3-d affects. I just want great graphics. If i was to buy a new video card down the road, i wonder would the ati 5970, or the new nvida 480 series work better with my monitor ?

Dvi Dual

I was trying to connect my monitor and tv using a dvi y, now i use to have the same setup using xp with a vga y no problems now i cant seem make my tv power up using dvi. Basically this is how i want it to be wired up, have the dvi y come out of the pc monitor or video card and having a dvi cable go to my monitor or pc and have a dvi to vga adapter go to my vga cable to my tv. Now my card has both a vga and dvi connection and have to wire them separate to work but leaves me with a mess of cables and rendering my dvi splitter and adapter useless as that's why i bought them thinking it would work as it did with my vga y setup.

Should I Use Dvi For My Pc Monitor Connection ?

My computer only seems to work through the dvi port, and i when i got it i got a dvi-vga adaptor, and was using that connected to a vga lead, then to my monitor. Got a new monitor/tv combo though with an actual dvi port. I don't have any dvi leads to my knowledge, so my question is would i get any benefit from buying one and using that? And is there anything i should take into consideration, e.g. The type or quality of the lead i buy (i don't really know anything about them. )

Secondly, my 360 is also connected to this tv, so if i freed up the vga port would i then get a benefit from buying a 360 vga lead to connect it by that, or should i stick to component?

My tv/monitor is an lg m2094d, 1680x1050, 720p.

Hdmi To Dvi + Optical ?

I have a laptop with hdmi output but no optical toslink out. I am using a dell ultrasharp that has only dvi or vga input. Would there be any way to split the video/audio hdmi to a dvi and then optical to go out to my receiver?

If i was using a tv i could always just use the optical out from that, but my dell has no such thing. The only thing i could find was a 4 port hdmi switcher on monoprice that also outputs toslink but at $50 it's more than i'd like to spend when i don't need the switching functionality. Anyone with a similar situation that could offer advice on the subject?
