Will my old display work with new CPUs?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello! I have an old only VGA display since 2007. In the next few years, I intend to build a new PC setup, that will include the latest CPU, and chipset (Like the I7 8700K and the Z370/Z270.) So, I want to know, will my old display work with this configuration? If not, what display do you recommend, for programming and for not super heavy gaming?

(I play ETS2, Cities skylines and Minecraft.)

(Now I'm using a VGA to DVI adapter for my nVidia GT 630, to connect my display to my video card.)

as long as it has correct ports it should work but consider upgrading 


I5 6600 / G1 1060 / 16 GB Samsung / Carbide Air 240 / 450BT Evga / Adata SU700 / WD Blue 1TB

It should work with no issues. You will likely need to use a DVI to VGA adapter though as most modern hardware no longer include a VGA connector.  If this display works well for your needs you don't really need to upgrade. Though if you have room in your budget a more modern display may make for a more enjoyable experience.

I am currently running a new system hardware with a bunch of late 2000's monitors as well. Just find a few DP to VGA adapters and you're set.


Want to know which mobo to get?

Spoiler

Choose whatever you need. Any more, you're wasting your money. Any less, and you don't get the features you need.

 

Only you know what you need to do with your computer, so nobody's really qualified to answer this question except for you.

DVI ports on motherboards generally do not support passive VGA adapters.

when you got money for that I don't allow you to use a VGA display from 199x. Tell your mom I said so.
