Default 6800gt/monitor question

I'm currently looking at 6800gts and I'm noticing they have two white connectors... But my monitor has a blue connector, does this mean I can't upgrade to a 6800gt?

You need DVI to VGA adaptors. Most cards come with them free, I got 2 of them with my XFX 6600GT.

Yeah, my eVGA has 1 VGA and 1 dvi connector as well as the S-video out, but yeah I don't think I haven't seen a card these days that didn't come with the little DVI to VGA adapter
