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

I do not accept help requests and/or deleted threads/complaints by PM, Profile or IM/Email. Just ask on the forums! Also, I do have Lockerz invites if you want them, feel free to PM me your email if you want one :0

If I help you, or you just like what I said, rep me by clicking the
or under my avatar; it helps me know that my advice actually helped you.

.. But things don't go according to plan! My Actual Rig, 2009:

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
