Hey guys, i got my 7870 today, it doesn't support vga, so right now i'm using my tv. I was wondering if i can use my old gpu which does support vga and use my 7870 to power everything. If that makes sense. I'll be buying a mini DP to vga soon but i wanted a temp fix.
A dvi-vga adapter would surely be cheaper than minidp to vga. I don't understand your question. You want to plug the monitor into your old gpu, but use the 7870? That won't work. The monitor has to be plugged into the 7870 to use it.
