That's why video cards come with adapters so normal VGA monitors will work on DVI.

That. Two posts, right after eachother, less than a day apart. Multi-quote or editing would suffice. This is your last warning. Do it again and your temp baned.

Almost all will come with two, my 8800GT did. But if the worst comes to the worst, you can always buy another for about $5.

I had a 5 to 10c decrease depending on the core. So I can now use a 1.5V Vcore. I'm getting about 38c idle and I touch 60c in Prime95.
