Most all LCD monitors now comes with a DVI to D-Sub adapter and vice versa. I have a Samsung LCD and gave me two separate cables: One used for the DVI port and another analog 15 pin monitor cable which I never bother to use.

He's planning on using an LCD monitor to it? The 15-pin is pretty standard so it should be ok with any monitor you use with that video card.

Unless you can return that one, but what a hassle though. My PC is running very nice so I can't complain too much. I wanted the MSI from the star but at the time, it was not available. The Gigabyte was the tops at Newegg when I got it (didn't want to use the SLi). Now that it's out, I'm reading good reviews on it. This is actually my first board that is outside of MSI. I miss it already.
