Hello!
Im gonna be getting a new gpu (gtx1650) but I don't have an HDMI port on my monitor. Will it affect my performance or anything if I use an HDMI to VGA/DVI adapter?

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

If it's avoidable, then avoid it. If your panel is too old and you can't afford a panel to connect natively from the GPU's end to your display, then you should look at adapters. Active adapters if you want audio out from your HDMI port. Make and model of the monitor you're working with now? Got a link to the GPU you're eyeing for a purchase?

My monitor is LG Flatron E2242. The gpu Im looking at is the gtx 1650 4gb ASUS TUF GAMING . I can buy another model of the gpu but i dont know if its worth it.

The E2242-C only has a D-Sub connection. The E2242-T has D-Sub and Dvi.

If Op has the 'C', then he'll need a hdmi-vga active adapter. If Op has the 'T' he'll only need a hdmi-dvi cable.
