    Ok im going to embarrass myself now :rolleyes:

    Im looking to purchase the following card

    Connect3D ATI Radeon X1800 XT 256MB GDDR3 AVIVO TV-Out/Dual DVI (PCI-Express) - Retail (GX-044-CO)

    I have a Samsung 172V Monitor which isnt DVI, do I need to purchase an adaptor to connect it to the card?

    <runs and hides>

    Thanks guys :D

    Yes you will need to buy a VGA to DVI cable. Roughly around £10 give or take a couple of quid depending where you buy it from of course.
