Not to mention an active adapter could cost as much as that used monitor you got. or more!

Our you could have bought an adapter for the same price... But hey glad you found something that works!

For my rig I found an old ATI 3d pro PCI card that still worked.  Just at my mobile to boot PCI video primary and it all worked with my 4 PCIE video cards and my old 4:3 VGA LCD monitor lol

You need an active adapter to go from DVI-D to VGA, and why further the signal loss. This was also an upgrade going from Analog to Digital and from 15" to 17" on the spare PC.

If I was only mining I would just use the motherboard for video but the point here was to improve both my secondary PCs for the kids to game with as well.

Tech Chat / The end of VGA/ DVI-I

While hunting for a 3rd cheap video card for mining/gaming I came to realize that my oldest LCD only had VGA. I also noticed that NON of the new cards have DVI-I which have VGA compatibility built in.

I thought about this for a while and didn't want to spend $200 on a card and $200 on a monitor.

Thankfully I found a DVI-D 4:3 monitor at ValueVillage for $14.

Looks like I am free to upgrade that video card now, just going to double check the board and how much clearance the case has.

I watched it, Punisher, and some people may not like the PTSD angle of the show, I thought it was done well enough to really get the realistic side approach of his story done fairly well.
