You need a dvi to vga adapter. New video cards(especially with dual dvi) will usually ship with at least 1.

If not included, just about any Radio Shack, Best Buy, Circuit City would have one. I would be surprised if the video card didn't come with at least one though. Most ship with 2 nowadays and I have about 4 laying around my house because of it.

I'll send you one if you need it and save you 10 bucks the store would probably charge you.

Let me know.

Actually, that looks like one of them sitting in the left side of the box in the first picture there with the video card.

Are you sure that isn't one of them in the box there? Could save a little money from buying one.

There was one in the box, hidden under the "holder" of the card :)

Thank you very much for telling me Anthony :)
