Default Computer monitor conversion

Hi i have a Hp monitor that only has a dvi-d input and my tower has a VGA connection only. I was think to buy a dvi-d to VGA converter and then connect a vga cable to make that monitor work with my tower. Has any one tried that convertion ? or any suggestions ? Thanks

Try ebay, very cheap and what you need.
Here is two links for examples.

DVI-I Male to VGA DVI-D Female Splitter Converter Cable | eBay

Well newegg is useless to me & others and there is nothing wrong with Ebay.

BTW I used the ebay listings for the OP to give him an idea to what to use for his problem....where he chooses to purchase is up to him.

Cheers.
