Default Video Card Dillemma

Hey guys I wondering if you can help me I am building a new system and planning on getting the EVGA 7950 GT/ Nvidia, but it comes with 2 DIV. And I am planning on using back my old CRT monitor and I think that it is D-SUB. Is there a way to come out of this dilemma without having to buy a new monitor. Cause I really like my CRT monitor it is really big and kool, so could you all please help me out

usually the graphics card comes with a cable. My bro is running a 7900gs on a crt and that only came with two dvi but the cable works just fine.
