DVI-I to SVGA monitor adaptor

My son was given a Dell Precision 470 workstation and was going to try to get it turned on to see what he has but the graphics card has what appears to be DVI-I connections.

Our current monitor has the SVGA connector.

I see that they have adapters, just wanting to see if anybody knows that this adaptor is all we need?

1) Yes, those adapters will work.

BUT
2) you can probably get a DVI capable monitor from a thrift shop for $10, which is close to the cost of the DVI to VGA adapter.

3) you can probably get a DVI to DVI + VGA cable for around the same price as a DVI to VGA adapter.
Cable is better because it lets you run a dual monitor system.

These cables split a DVI-I into DVI-digital (aka "DVI") and DVI-analog (VGA)

So, IIWY I'd purchase a splitter cable(s) instead of an adapter.

4) That DVI "dual link" card (digital + analog) will drive a quad HD monitor setup (2 DVI and 2 VGA)
so I'd start accumulating cables and 1080 monitors...


PS, the round connector is NOT S-Video, it's for N-Videa 3d glasses
