    I have a compaq computer(Athlon 64 3500+) that has a built in graphics card. I was looking into throwing in a XFX GeForce 7600GS 256MB PCI Express x16 Video Card (Dual DVI S-Video). I have a pci-e slot open so I know that isn't going to be a problem. The only thing I am worried about is that this new graphics card isn't going to have a vga output, which is the only connection my monitor has. Will I still be able to plug my monitor into the original vga output slot while using my new graphics card? If not, does anybody know how well a dvi to vga adapter works?

    Thanks for the help!

    yeah you just use an adapter to the new card, if you bought retail box t should have come with one.
