I'm still chasing down an answer to this. I've figured out that the EVC connector on the back of my dad's monitor can only accept analog signals, and that there are cables that can connect to a DVI port and transmit the embedded analog signal to an EVC-equipped monitor, but now I want to make sure that the video card's DVI port outputs an embedded analog signal before I spend the money on the special cable. So I was thinking...if the video card comes with a DVI-to-VGA adapter, and the adapter can't actually convert a digital signal to an analog signal, that must mean that the video card's DVI port does in fact output an embedded analog signal as well as a digital one. So I should be safe with a cable with a DVI-Analog plug at one end and an EVC-Analog plug at the other. Right?
