NVIDIA Quadro FX 500 Outputs

    I have 2 LCD displays with digital inputs. The NVIDIA Quadro FX 500
    card has two outputs, 1 DVI-I and one VGA. If I use a VGA-DVI adapter
    on the VGA output to connect a DVI cable to my second display with
    digital input, will this second display receive digital content?

    Nope. All the adaptor does is route the analog signal to the five pins
    arranged in a square pattern on one side of the DVI socket.

    Rather than the QuadroFX, I suggest you try to find a Gainward Ti4600. I
    think it's called the Ultra/750XP. It has dual-DVI connectors... and faster
    3D than your QuadroFX 500.

    Thanks for the replies. The system is a new work system provided by my
    company. Unfortunate about the one analog output on the card but I am not
    going to worry about it. I'm not playing games on the system, just punching
