Default Hi guys I'm new and need help! :)

So thus guy in craigslist is selling his computer. Want's it for 450 but I talked him down to 400. I haven't built a computer in years so I don't know if the price is good. Computer is but like I said i dont know about price so I need advice.

Gaming / Multipurpose 3.4GHz Quad Core PC

Is it a good price to get it for 400? Or could I buy a better or equal build new for 400.

I live in the uk, I'm not sure if usa is cheaper for parts but I think it is, it's actually about right, but I need to know what g'card, because if it isn't that good then maybe not...but if it is, then it is good, but it is gddr5 which is quad pumped, which 800mhzx4=3200mhz.

Let me know what g'card it is.

That doesn't tell me anything. It could have anything between a 6000 Series Radeon and a Titan.

Unrelated to his ^, I have a asus m5a88-m mother board. I understand that the graphics card is built in and I cannot use it in conjunction with another graphics card to support more than two monitors.
1. How do I find out how many graphics cards it can support?
2. What type should i get (this is not for gaming I just need at least 3 monitors)?
