Default New Computer Question

Ok, so I have decided to buy a new computer, this is the one I have decided on.
HP Pavilion p6-2133w Desktop PC Product Specifications - HP technical support (Andorra - English)
The only problem is, my monitor only has a VGA input, but this computer has only a DVI-D output.
so what I'm really needing to know is, will this video card work with this computer and allow me to use my current monitor with it.
Newegg.com - ASUS EAH5450 SILENT/DI/1GD3/V2(LP) Radeon HD 5450 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

also, does anyone have any suggestions of any other desktops equal or better than this one in the same price range.
thanks for any input guys!

Converters for that are cheap and widely available.

about $5.
Newegg.com - Link Depot DVI-AVGA-ADPT DVI To VGA Adapter

maybe even cheaper if you have a local pc shop in your area
