    I'm thinking about getting this card but in the specs on the ATI site it says that it has these connectors:

    Dual VGA
    Stereo audio, S-video, and composite video inputs and outputs
    External stereo connections to sound card’s line input and output
    Dolby® digital stereo audio output (S/PDIF)

    My question is this. If it has all these connections, where are they? In the picture they have of this card, it shows only the S-video, and VIVO connectors and a weird square connector. Click here to see what I mean.
    Does this card come with another set of connectors that plugs into the square one or into the board itself?

    Thanks

    the one little square connector that seems to be a small dvi connector is actually an adaptor for a cable that has all this stuff on it :)

    look @ this to see what I mean...

    Thanks for the help. Just what I needed to know. One more question. Can I still use a DVI display with a VGA - DVI adapter?

    technically you should be able to emulate some sort of dv interface... but I am not sure since I have never used one of those things personally...

    have a look around the web and see if you can read any reviews... the only thing I ever read about them is that they do work... somewhat...

    if not you'll still have dual vga's :D

    and the adaptor I think is only around $20 or something like that.. not very expensive...
