because the video that comes out of the card is digital, then the converter would have to put it in analog.

then the vga is the same thing, except its better.

vga only for crt,
or adapter for dual display.

so for dual display
display 1 ------------- analog blue
display 2 ----adapter---dvi

yeah, is there any performance gain from it? cuz i have it hooked up to the blue connector. will the dvi-vga adapter give me better results? also, can i dual setup 2 crt's with it?

MrSmiley hmmm I'm just fine. I am loving my dual display (thanks again slow'puter). I can read people's IM's while "Killing the baddies" in Day of Defeat.

RunningRioT there are mods for unreal, quake, and a few others, google them up.

blob Games dont like dual displays, you might want to search for games that support them.
