I have a 2 year old 19" monitor with an ANALOG 25 pin connector, yet the 6800's are all coming out with DVI connectors...how would I go about getting an adapter? or what should I do?

:rolleyes:

Don't worry each and every manufacturer will provide a converter for free.
Dvi isn't that common.

Yes, even cards with one DVI connection and one Analog connection have a converter.

Yep, they do, I always use the DVI out on my card as it does give a clearer picture on my CRT monitor.

I am not sure how that works on an Nvidia card, but I was thing of doing this on my current ATI card. I am curious if this enables the secondary mode on my video card or still sees it as primary if there is no second monitor hooked up to it.

I am currently at a friend's house for the weekend or I would just try it on my PC and see what happens.
