Card with only DVI (DVI to VGA question)

    I saw an MX440 64mb 8x agp card on ebay for a really good price. The only
    thing is, it doesn't have a VGA output. It has a DVI and the seller is
    including an adapter to plug onto the DVI out so that I can hook my VGA
    monitor to it. My question, will using this adapter in any way affect the
    picture quality on my 17" monitor? Or should I just spring for a card with
    a VGA out on it?

    Thanks.

    Stay away - Geforce4 MXs are pretty much Geforce2s in disguise.
