    When I was building my system a year ago from now I made a small mistake, I bought a analog monitor (D-sub) because it was cheap, the monitor is fine but I would like to put a graphics card in it at some point and most don't have a analog output.

    My motherboard supports Lucid Virtu which is a program that switches between the integrated graphics (HD 3000) and the graphics card depending on the situation. You keep your monitor plugged into the motherboard not the graphics card (I think).

    I can buy the Gigabyte GTX 650 2GB which has a D-sub connector, but I would like something a bit more powerful. So I though I could plug something like a 560 Ti in with no analog output and the Lucid virtu could convert it to analog.

    Would this work?
    Thanks

    Of course I just have to make sure the graphics card had a DVI-I output, why didn't I think of that.

    Cheers
