From the info on Intel, you would need a separate video card. See here:
That monitor does not appear to have any other inputs than VGA
You may be just as able to play the DVD on your PC rather than try to play it on a DVD player and connect to the monitor. Any conversion device is going to be way more than putting a DVD drive in your computer, if you do not have one now.
I am planning to buy a used CRT monitor Viewsonic A90F (VGA input) that has been used for roughly 2 years. Link http://reviews.cnet.com/crt-monitors/viewsonic-a90f/4507-3175_7-8773931.html?tag=sub
My questions are:
1. Since I recently purchased a motherboard, how would I know the video format type (DVI or VGA) the motherboard supports. The mobo is based on Intel P965 express chipset. Full spec here - http://www.newegg.com/product/product.asp?item=N82E16813121035
2. I would like to connect my DVD player to the monitor. The DVD player has both S-Video and component video output (RGB) but I am not sure (could not find from the link above) if the monitor has component video input ports. Can anyone please clarify this?
3. If component video ports are not present in the monitor, is there some kind of adapter in the marker that will convert component RGB to VGA.
