I am looking at the new nvidia 7800GTX 512MB for my future computer, and one thing I've noticed is that they all have S-Video connections and 2 Composite connections, but none of the old 15-pin VGA connections.

Is there a way to plug a 15-pin VGA monitor to this card via some kind of conversion cable or dongle? If so, are there any possible problems, hazards, or issues doing so? I'm eventually getting a new monitor, but this card is already breaking the bank, so the new monitor will take a while.

It comes with a DVI to VGA adapter so you should be fine with your monitor.
