    Hello! I need help finding the correct adapter to purchase. My desktop PC has a male VGA connector on the rear of the chassis. I want to connect it to my LCD monitor which has a cable with a male DVI-D connector. Do you have the correct adapter in stock? Thanks.

    Hello Big Al,

    Thank you for reaching out on our HelpCenter.

    VGA video is analog while DVI-D video is digital, and the two are incompatible. as a result, you will need a CGA to DVI converter (NOT a plain adapter) to accomplish your connection. The following items #3, 4, 5, 6 will do the job for you.

    Hope this helps!
