I'm buying a build-your-own computer which will have the 6850 in it. Once I noticed the prong slots were different than what my monitor offers, I did some researched, and only just now learned the difference between VGA and DVI.
So no, an adapter won't come with it, so I have to purchase the adapter separate.
Thank you for the response!
Any adapters that you would personally recommend? Anyone?
The one I found an image of (above) says: "Connect your DVI-I Display to a VGA video card. This DVI-I to VGA Display Adapter (M/F) is used to convert a DVI Male connector to a VGA female connector. The DVI to VGA adapter is constructed of high quality materials to ensure dependability."
That sounds like it's made to connect a DVI monitor to a VGA video card... not the other way around.
