    Quick question for you gurus :)

    I'm building a new system, but I'm not ready (can't afford) a new monitor yet. Looking at most cards above mid level, preferably Nvidia, all I seem to find is dual DVI cards.

    That in itself is fine since I want to get an LCD anyway. But I'm still running a CRT (with the old 12 pin?). My question is, using the adaptor to plug my current monitor in, are there any consequences? Will I lose any quality?

    Or should I just wait a few more weeks and grab a new LCD instead of dealing with the adaptor?

    adapters are fine. no quality loss or anything like that..... least none that i noticed before getting a DVI monitor.
