New video card + old monitor?

Hi, as some of you may already I just ordered a new system.

For the build, I got an XFX Radeon 4890...

However, I am now concerned if I can connect my monitor to it. I have an old school CRT that I really like, but the connection on it looks different from the connection on the card...
Do they give an adapter? I REALLY hope I don't need a new monitor...

Thanks!

This. I've bought $20 cheapos from newegg to replace bad integrated GPU on motherboard and even those come with DVI -> VGA adapter.

No worries.
