Video card is what produces the graphics (image)you see on the monitor. If you look on the back of any PC, you'll see that the monitor is plugged into a video card hidden inside the case (with the extrenal port visible for connectivity).

You can still have two video cards on motherboards that support SLi for increase graphic performance.
