no... that means...

DVI-D works with DVI

DVI works with DVI-D but it doesn't matter because your monitor doesn't come with a DVI Cable, just a VGA Cable, so you use the DVI to VGA connector that came with the video card

hmm i think i will just get a DVI-I cable from the store and use that instead. Why spend the money on getting a DVI LCD LG 19" when you cant enjoy it for that reason. But yea and guess what people...... I FINIISHED BUILDING THE COMPUTER!!!!!!!!! and everything is running smoothly beside for the OS cuz i dont have it installed yet but aside from that i feel like i accomplished something big in my life :happy: . Ill try to take a couple of pics of the final product one i install the OS to show off
