    Thank you every one, I'll wait till I receive the cable and then I'll let you know.

    Thanks!!

    I have some bad news for you. I show that your monitor only has a VGA input. The DVI connector on the GTX 1050 Ti is DVI-D (digital only) and CANNOT be adapted to VGA with a cable or adapter. You need either a card that has VGA or DVI-I (digital and analog) or a monitor that has DVI or other digital input that the card also has, such as HDMI or DisplayPort.

    The Nvidia 10-series cards have no analog video support at all, they are 100% digital.

    Seriously? It does not? I cannot afford a new monitor right now.
    Any other card that is been released recently that support the monitor?

    you need a converter, not an adapter... not sure of video quality, butt for 16 bucks ( post #24 ), it'll buy time till you can afford a better monitor... or return the card and get one with vga output

    Those adapters do not work. You do not need a 1050 Ti for editing, I'd return the card and get a cheaper one that has VGA. A GT 730 would do the job quite well, most of them have a native VGA port.

    Yes, and I'm not recommending it. No sense in using a card that is a lot more than what this person needs. Might as well return the card and cable and buy a cheaper card, saves money.

    ok, so the non-recommendation has to do with frugality not that the converters are bad/non functional... i posted it because you stated there is no way to connect dvi-d to vga, now you know there is a way, albeit not cost effective in this case...

    Not just frugality. I don't trust cheap digital to analog converters, video quality may not be acceptable, especially in an editing situation. I knew about them, have researched them in the past for possible use, and decided to do the job right.

    that sounds sound to me, hence my warning of video quality in that post... still, i'd try it if in a jam, but the op isn't in one, unless the gpu vendor refuses the return...

    nice to have options, even if they're weak...

    If is possible I'll keep this graphic card as my little brother plays game some time.

    Thanks to everyone

    A 1050 is a very weak graphics card for gaming, It's next to worthless unless all he plays is Donkey Kong or Space Invaders. :) Return it.

    Edit: nevermind. The V model apparently is VGA only.

    Are you sure the monitor doesn't have DVI? Some sites say it has DVI and VGA, others just say VGA. In general, though, nearly all LCD monitors (even older ones) included a digital input.

    A 1050 Ti is not that bad. Not everyone is as demanding as you are.

    Agreed, check the reviews to see what it can and cannot do for the games your brother plays.

    My opinion is that if you will use it now then fine, otherwise wait until you need a card and shop again. The card should play most games. Just look up the games and see the minimum needed video requirements.
    Get an HDMI cable (or use one from your DVD or cable TV box) and play them on your TV is also a solution.
