Hello , so guys I'm planning to get a used XFX RX 570 4GB for $84 , it has 3xDP - 1xHDMI and 1xDVI-D outputs , and i'm running an old Samsung SyncMaster E1920 monitor and it only has 1xVGA input , my question is should i get a DP to VGA or HDMI to VGA or DVI-D to VGA adaptor to run at 1366x768p @60Hz or at 1440x900p @75Hz (i have another monitor) ?

Unless you plan to get A DP /HDMI monitor in the near future
DVI-D to VGA adaptor to run at 1366x768p @60Hz or at 1440x900p @75Hz (i have another monitor) ?

well,first of all make sure the card is legit.
the amount of 2nd hand rx cards that use some sort of mining bioses is just overwhelming.to find one that's mint condition is hard.

There is different types, DVI-D and DVI to D-sub plus everyone in china makes them and some are just crap. It's best to just not use them.
