My main monitor is using the DVI input on the card and i just plugged my old 15 inch crt to use as a secondary monitor through the hdmi to dvi cord, then used the dvi to vga adapter to plug the monitor in, the lights blinking on my crt but it wont display a picture. I'm certain the monitor works so that isnt the issue. is it because im daisy-chaining so many different things?

So, from the back of the card:

HDMI port > DVI female > VGA female

Then you plugged the CRT into the VGA port?

It's HDMI>Dvi F>Dvi M. and then its VGA F> VGA M. the crt is plugged into the dvi-vga adapter

I've never tried doing that, but I know that DVI-D works only with digital signals, such as HDMI.

DVI-I is for analog.

The pin layout works as such: DVI-I is compatible with all DVI cables, digital or analog, but DVI-D will only work with digital.

Perhaps it is the adapter.

would it be better to use the adapter on the dvi input on the card for my crt then use the hdmi adapter for my main monitor then?

Yeah its worth a try.

DVI > VGA for your CRT

and HDMI > DVI for your main monitor.

Just be sure to have the correct cables.
