So I bought a GTX 1050 2gb graphics card, but I noticed it's HDMI only, but my monitor is VGA only, so how can I install it?
Havent place the graphics card in the motherboard yet. But can't I just connect the monitor to the outlet on the photo I attached? Sorry, I'm new to these stuff...15391030503842130410811.jpg

Hi Nekuchan900, and welcome to TSG.

The VGA outlet in your photo is for the motherboard's built-in video controller. That controller will most like be disabled when a plug-in video card is detetected. There is no way to get the video from your new controller board to come out of that VGA connector. You would be better off with returning the new video controller board and buying one with a VGA output. The other option would be to purchase a new monitor with an HDMI input.
