I'm looking to set up a second monitor. I have the monitor I'd like to use, (a small flatscreen television we no longer use)
It's got a normal HDMI port, along with a VGA port.
My graphics card is a Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti. (Three ports on it, DVI-A [currently being used for my main monitor] DVI-D, and some sort of smaller HDMI port???)
I looked into it a little, and found there are adapters to have a VGA cable connect to a DVI-D port, though I couldn't seem to find it at BestBuy. Upon asking a worker if they could direct me to where they are, he said either "you can't go from low definition to high definition" (possibly the other way around, I don't quite recall.) He also told me that they do make adapters such as the one I asked for, but also that they didn't work well, hence not carrying them.
So, the question is, what sort of adapter which works well for dual displays, and uses either VGA cable or HDMI cable? (Preferably HDMI, as I haven't got much of a use for mine anymore, why not repurpose it!)
This BestBuy worker also told me that they make adapters which allow a VGA or HDMI cable to be plugged into it, and in turn, the adapter would work fine in a USB port. (I personally have no idea about that, never heard anything like that before)
If it helps at all, I have a picture of the ports on my graphics card (Disregard the yellow one, as it is used for my main monitor) and the ports on the television I will use.
Thank you in advance, I know it was long, I can sum it up a little more if need be.
