Can anyone suggest the last/best graphics cards (mid-to-high end), having an actual VGA port? I'm not interested in any connectors, adapters, or other gizmos to get a VGA plug to fit any other sort or port, so current cards are not wanted. I'm looking for legacy cards.

 Gday.

The last one I have seen with an actual VGA port, > https://www.newegg.c.../1FT-009P-00002

Why does it have to be Lagacy? and why no adapters?

 

Slightly later cards that have Duel link DVI often cam with a pin converter as one of the DVI I ports has VGA (D-sub) output.

Thanks for your reply. Since posting I have (with help on other forums) compiled this list of suitable cards, all having an actual VGA port:

 

ASUS GeForce GTX 750 Ti DirectX 11 GTX750TI-OC-2GD5 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

Palit GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) DirectX 11 NE5X56T01142-1041F 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

ASUS 2GB Graphics Cards R7240-2GD3-L

Asus 90YV0AL1-M0NA00 GeForce GT710 2GB DDR5 Graphics Card

BTO NVIDIA GeForce GT 730 4GB VGA DVI HDMI PCI-E Video Graphics Card

ZOTAC GeForce GT 730 Zone Edition 4GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 (x8 lanes) Graphics Card

ZOTAC GeForce GT 740 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) ZT-71006-10L 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Low Profile Ready Video Card

ZOTAC GeForce GT 730 DirectX 12 (feature level 11_0) ZT-71115-20L 4GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 Zone Edition Video Card

Galaxy GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST DirectX 11 65NPH7DN7WGU 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card

ASUS GeForce GTX 750 Ti DirectX 11 GTX750TI-OC-2GD5 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready Video Card

 

I know little about graphics cards. For example I had thought a 4GB card would beat a 2GB model, but the consensus seems to be the opposite. Anyway I need to whittle these ten down to the 2 or 3 best, or put them into order of best to worst, or do something to make tracking one down a bit less unwieldly. Any ideas on how to focus on the 'pick of the litter', separate the wheat from the chaff, etc.?

Of the cards listed, the top 5, as listed on Toms Hardware, Legacy list are, https://www.tomshard...archy,4388.html

GTX 750 Ti

GTX 650 Ti Boost

GTX 560 Ti (448 Core)

GTX 560 Ti

GTX 470

You will find very similar grouping on most GPU comparison sites.  The cards are from different generation and although close in performance, the architecture changes, meaning the newer cards are more efficient and use less power.

You will need to make comparisons, example site, > https://www.gpucheck.com/  Then find reviews where comparisons are done.

Choose by which card performs the tasks most important to you.

 

Finding a new card for sale will be hard as they are so old now,
