hello ive recently purchased a graphics card online, a sapphire radeon 6770.

do i need a vga cable?

or can it run off the motherboard without it?

will i still see the graphics even though there is no vga cable running from graphics card to the monitor???????


ps yes i know the graphics card is dvi, but ther is an adapter that comes with it, if i actually need the vga cable

is the dvi cable the cable that connects the monitor to the computer?

im sorry if thats a stupid question?

and if thats so, can i just switch the connection over to the graphics card rather that the computer?
