Hook up to old Monitor

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys just made my new computer yesterday,but my friend still needs to give me my monitor, so.......i have a very old CRT, but my 8800 doesn't have the right hook up for it. is it possible for me to take an old graphics card from a computer, put it into mine, just to use the monitor hook up, while still utilizing the graphics from my new comp?
