    Hello all,

    included with my x1650 was an ATi branded DVI->VGA adapter, which I need to use as my CRT monitor only has 2 VGA inputs. My question is a simple one; will this adapter work on any brand/model of card? The reason I ask is that I am considering an upgrade to a (likely pre-owned) NVidia card (either 7900GTO, 7950GT, 8600GT, 8600GTS, 9500GT or 9600GT) and almost none of the ones I have seen for sale include an adapter inside the box. Confirmation either way would be great.

    Many thanks.

    Yes. DVI to VGA adaptors will work on anything.

    The same is true for HDMI to DVI (and vice versa) adaptors with the exception of audio - you tend to only get video signals.
