Can someone help me out, I cannot find a user manual for the AMD Radeon™ HD 8570 and it came with my ASUS pc. I need to get a HDMI to VGA adaptor and I noticed there are powered and non-powered versions.

Does the HDMI provide power?

Does anyone have suggestions on some HDMI to VGA adapters?

Here is what I am looking at getting, just wanted to make sure a "non" powered one that uses HDMI power would work.

From the description of the item you linked to:

"No external power required, power supply from HDMI signal."

HDMI does supply 5V power on the connection.  You can't draw a whole lot of current, but it's evidently enough to convert from HDMI to VGA.
