Hi,
I have a Asrock Fatality motherboard
running a ryzen 1700
and a gtx 1070 ti

But i want a third monitor, but before i make a purchuse, i have a VGA only monitor set on my old mount... just sitting there, is there a way to do it on software. All my monitors display on HDMI, but my motherboard has a output for VGA, can i output on that.
If not i can get a VGA to HDMI adapter.

Oh im on Windows 10

Your motherboard's video ports only work with the Ryzen APU's which end in G (ex: R3-2400G)

Yes they Make HDMI to VGA Active* adapters, as well as Display Port to VGA and USB to VGA.

*be sure to get an active adapter for HMDI or DP to VGA.
Usb is its own little GPU and doesn't need one plus its not really good for anything but business graphics.
