Monitor input on Graphics card is different

hi i have bought a matrox millenium pci gfx card and when i looked at the monitor input on it, i noticed that it is different from the standard one, i have seen this before on cards with the other input too, is there some sort of converter for it, and can anyone actually tell me what it is for? a breif description of it is, its about an inch long and grey in colour with loads of square holes, any help is appreciated thanks :D

If it's a DVI connector, then a DVI to VGA connector may do click here. G

Count the holes. If it's 60, then it's most probably the one in my 2nd link. But that's so expensive, isn't it?! G

First - monitor connections are outputs, not inputs.

Second, the connector is a Matrox "special" to feed two monitors from a single socket. (hence the form of the adapter cable)

Just don't ask why they did it this way - cos' I haven't a clue.
