Default VGA is NOT dead

Seriously, I hate how there is a lack of VGA ports in motherboards and video cards now.

VGA is not dead at all, now everyone focuses on DVI. Finding a motherboard with a vga port is really hard. Most monitors still use vga.

Can anyone find me a decent motherboard with a vga port in it?

You can get DVI to VGA and vice versa connections. They usually ship with graphics cards, and allow you to change a DVI to a VGA connection very simply:

yep. If u have a VGA monitor and a vid card with only DVI then it's best to get a converter. They are pretty cheap so if u don't have one u can always buy one.

VGA is slowly being obsolete. Trust me, by 2008 the new standard won't even be DVI, it'll be HDMI. By then DVI will be the new VGA.
