Default Video card question

Hi all, I've been looking at this video card and had a few questions hoped you could answer them for me?
http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduc...102-345&DEPA=1

There's a cable with it that looks like it connects dvi to d-sub am I going to maintain quality that way and is it a male or female d-sub connector? I appreciate all advice and/or comments on this card. Thanx

~adam

oh wait a minute, thats not a dvi-cable . . .

ati compressed the dvi/vga/tvout things into one weird looking connector . . . but i think if you plug it into a dvi monitor, it will have good quality . . .

as for the card . . .

its a damn good card at a damn good price . . .

im not sure about HARDCORE gaming . . . you'll still be able to do gaming, just not HARDCORE

dvi = digital video interface . . . basically its better than the analog alternative . . .
