I m going to buy a ZOTAC NVIDIA GTX 660 Synergy Edition : http://www.flipkart.com/zotac-nvidia-gtx-660-synergy-2-gb-ddr5-graphics-card/p/itmdsfybhynexnw9?pid=GRCDSFYBHYNEXNW9&cmpid=content_graphics-card_8965229628_gmc_pla&tgi=sem,1,G,11214002,g,search,,25649953100,1o2,,,c,,,,,,,&gclid=CI_Bp8b6ir4CFQWSjgodgiwAFw

My monitor ( Hp w1707, 1440X900 ) has a VGA cable, and the Graphics card's connectivity is one DVI-D ( dual link ) , one DVI-I ( dual link ) and one HDMI output

I m thinking to use a DVI-D to VGA adapter with the DVI-I output of the GFX card to connect my monitor. Is it possible?

Yes it is. All of the graphics card comes with DVI-D and DVI-I (where D = digital and I = both digital and analog signals). As long as your DVI cable is the right slot the DVI to VGA adapter is fine.
