Connecting your Siluro GF4 Ti4400/Ti4600 to your monitors

The Siluro GF4 Ti Series provides supports for one DVI-Imonitor or two VGA monitors using the suppliedDVI-Ito VGA Adapter. A television can also be used to expand your desktop by using theS-Videoconnector accompanying with the Cable bundled.

Plug the monitor cable into your card (if you are running multiple monitors, connect their cables to the appropriate connectors), then turn on the computer and monitor(s).
