How can I use an analog monitor with my computer?

Jeff from Bakersfield, CA
DVI Differences

Jeff uses a second monitor on his desk, but it takes too much room. He wants to swap it out with a smaller analog monitor. He got a DVI to analog adapter, but it uses both DVI-D and DVI-I options. HIs monitor is DVI-D, so it doesn't work. Leo says you have to get a DVI-D to VGA analog adapter, which has a digital to analog converter built into it. It'll be more expensive, but it's still doable. Startech makes one. It's $31 on Amazon.
