Looking at this Asus Strix GTX 960 (http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=VGAAS66184&name=Asus-STRIX-GTX-960-DirectCU-II-Overclocked-2GB-GDD) to replace my old HD4850.

According to the specs, it has got only one DVI Output, 1 HDMI output and Display port. I need to have dual monitor for my system and my monitors have both DVI and VGA (D-Sub) connections. How do I go about to connect both of my monitors to this card?

Cheers

HDMI or DisplayPort to DVI cable/adapter. PBTech should have them for not much.

Some graphics cards include an adapter in the box, I ended up with a couple that way.
The adapter should be cheap as HDMI video is compatible with DVI so it's just a connector conversion with no electronics, you just lose audio capabilities.

The cable is a tidier solution and still cheap as well http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?p=search&sf=DYNAMIX+2M+HDMI+Male+to+DVI-D+Male+%2818%2B1
