Default Question about monitors.

I'm planning on buying this monitor,

and it has only one connection type and it happens to be the same as my current monitor (the blue trapezoid type shape, I think it's called d-sub). I was wanting to have a dual monitor setup and just leave my current CRT plugged in until I got enough money for a second one. Are there any connection adapters for these?

Also, if anyone knows of a better 19"LCD with 8ms response out there, please feel free to let me know.

The monitor should come with DVI and VGA cords. Didn't your video card come with an adapter? You can get them at newegg.

Here is one kick *** 19" LCD monitor. One of the best performances for gaming... And it's dropped in price dramtically.

Can't go wrong with a viewsonic...
