PCI Express DVI (Digital) Adapter Card Installation and Setup Guide
 
The Digital Visual Interface (DVI) adapter card, using the integrated graphics controller on your computer, provides a DVI port. The DVI port provides a direct,
digital connection to a digital display, such as a digital flat panel display. The DVI adapter works through the integrated graphics on your computer and is
controlled through the integrated graphics driver's user interface, which is located under the Control Panel in Microsoft® Windows® operating systems. The
DVI adapter plugs into the PCI Express x16 slot on your system board.
