Monitor Connection Question


Jan 10, 2013
I just bought a monitor to go with my recent pc build. It supports full HD resolution, and has a VGA and DVI-D Connection.

I havent been able to try it out yet, but I have a question.

The monitor only came with a VGA cable. I know one option will be to buy a DVI-D cable.

However, I was wondering if a DVI to VGA adapter will work as well.

My current setup is a GTX 660 with a VGA adapter(in the DVI-I slot) running to my old non-HD monitor.

So my question is: If I hook up my new HD monitor in the same fashion(DVI to VGA), will I be able to run my new monitor in HD?
