I just put together my first hard drive with a motherboard of MSI K8T Neo, VIA K8T800 series. The ports on it are 25 pin female and 9 pin male. All of the monitors I have are 15 pin male. Any suggestions on what I can do to set up a monitor with this?

hi shupinga


The reason you dont have the d sub 15 pin connector is because there isnt an onboard graphics card. Which is good actually.

You have to buy a seperate video card that is Agp 8X and install it into that slot then you will have your monitor hook up.

Many different video cards to choose from. Make shure you get an agp 8x video card for that motherboard you picked out. :tazz:
