Just get a little adapter. They usually supply them in the box with the card.

You need a Male DVI to Female VGA adapter.

If it is the card in the picture don't sweet it as it already has a normal VGA port. It also has a DVI & S-Video port to connect to normal tv's.

I cannot make out the brand model from that link but if it is like my old nvidia 6600 I got a DVI->vga adapter in the box with it but it is not needed as it already has a normal vga output. When the 6600 cards came out there were no dvi only cards like today.

So you are ready to plug and play as they would say ;)

Look at the picture if you want to put your mind at ease. The top most silver square is the S-video connector, right below it is the white DVI connector and right at the bottom is the blue VGA connector.
