    Thanks why I said 'I think'. But even my oldest LCD monitor has two inputs, one with the old connection and one with a digital. Since the 9800 GT has 2 digitals I've used just a simple adapter to connect on of the outputs to the old ACER monitor. It has 1 x VGA - 15 pin HD D-Sub (HD-15) connections.

    But like you guys say, we'll never know unless he gives us his specs.

    Don't you just hate such half descriptions that don't actually describe anything ?

    Just use two monitors that are the same brand... or just stop assuming your monitor is analog
