Default using a vga monitor on a 8600GTS

I am planning on getting a 8600GTS soon for directx 10 but my monitor connects with a vga port but these cards only have DVI ports. Is there any way to make the monitor I have now work with one of these cards?

Yes it will come with the adapters to run VGA. At least it should come with them. May want to check whats included with what your ordering.

Yeah, I have yet to see a video card that comes with DVI that does not have one DVI to VGA adapter per DVI port.

I Bought an Xpertvision 8600GT and it came with a DVI to VGA Converter,so im assuming whichever brand you are buying from should come with a DVI to VGA Dongle or adaptor.

When I bought my X1650Pro from HIS it didn't come with any converters.
