DVI-D(digital) to VGA(analog) converter - GTX 1050ti

I've recently bought gtx 1050 ti. It has a HDMI 2.0b, DisplayPort 1.4 and Dual-Link DVI-D output.
My monitor output is VGA.
DVI-D signals are digital, while VGA signals are analog so the video card must support outputting analog over the DVI-D port. Video Card : https://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=04G-P4-6253-KR

  1. That's a passive adapter and it won't work, you need an ACTIVE adapter.

    I love the description of that adapter:
    "Feature:

    ●DVI-D 24+1 Male To VGA 15 Pin Female Converter Adapter for LCD HDTV screen
    ●Allows you to convert a standard DVI-D port into a second VGA port
    ●Connect any VGA monitor with HD15 male connector to any computer with DVI-D port (25pin - 3x 8 rows and 1 flat pins)
    ●Complete with thumb screws and barrel nuts to make sure of a secure connection
    ●Ideal for people who want to use the dual monitors for their work/game environment
    ●Gold plated DVI-D pins to ensure high quality signal transfer
    ●Easy to install, just plug and play

    ●This adapter will only work with graphic cards that are analog compatible"

    Except that DVI-D port is always digital (that "D" in the name), never analog.
    "The DVI connector on a device is given one of three names, depending on which signals it implements:
    DVI-I (integrated, combines digital and analog in the same connector; digital may be single or dual link)
    DVI-D (digital only, single link or dual link)
    DVI-A (analog only)" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Visual_Interface

    Why you think so? Description usually only lists highest supported resolution. So if it says 1920x1200 for example, 1366x768 will work too.

  8. Because they pointed out that it only worked with those resolutions. Anyway thanks

  9. If you're in any doubt, you can always buy a new monitor which has a digital input instead! - :lol:
