So something like this? https://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIAD1N64U3701

Seems to fit with the card, 24 pins + 1, but nowhere on the card box does it says its DVI-D so this s*** confuses me. The other side fits with the CRT as well.

To add on to that, my googling tells me the 1060 GTX does not support analog, so you need an "active adapter"?

So a simple adapter to DVI won't actually work?

So I actually need this? https://www.amazon.ca/StarTech-com-Active-Adapter-Converter-1920x1200/dp/B00C93JQXS

Which is expensive AF.

Oh guess what, all active adapters I just pointed out also are limited to 60hz anyway. What the f***, man.

Back to square 1, no solution found.

Unless they actually support 85hz on CRT resolutions, its unclear, they just don't mention the heartz on the lower resolutions.

GUESS I'LL HAVE TO GAMBLE.

Reminds me of those old consoles where a CRT gives you the best image.

Passive DVI adapters will not work as they rely on getting a VGA signal via DVI-I pinouts. Your card only supports digital signals, which means you need an active adapter to convert from a digital signal to your analogue VGA signal.
Active adapters should be able to run higher refreshrates. I used a HDMI to VGA for a while, and it worked fine at 75hz.
Alternatively, if you have a motherboard with integrated graphics, they often still support VGA fine. I'm presently using that.

Yes, thats what I figured eventually. Glad to know it did work on 75hz, it might give me a few more options. Just don't think anyone around sells those adapters so I have to wait for the damn shipping to try anything.

A crt with only vga is not a good crt. Get one that supports dvi and is at least 1600 x 1200. I got a 17 inch in my locker in my basement if you want. You'd just have to pay shipping. Lol. I imagine the shipping costs more than the screen.
