Default new monitor plug

im gettin a NEC MultiSync FE1250+ 22" CRT Monitor but it says the connection to my graphics card is "15 PIN Mini D SUB" ive had a look around and i dont know if this is the same as the one on my gainwood gf3 ti200. ive lost the manual for it as its a very old card. all i would like to know is if its the same socket and if its not if you can buy a convertor from anywhere?

thanks for any help

Well my GF2 card has only a normal VGA and S-Video out connector. If the plug from the card is blue and has 15 pins in it then you have a standard VGA plug. a 15 pin mini d sub connector however looks like this:

so your graphics card would need that connector which I'm pretty sure you don't have. So yeah I don't know what kind of card you'd need to run that, but I'm pretty sure you can just get an adapter. Google it. that's always the best way
