Default Questions regarding dual graphics and monitor.

Hey guys, So I'm going to buy this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16883227146

I was wondering if this computer would be able to run dual graphics cards if I ever wanted to upgrade it? I guess this would be called SLI because it's an nvidia?

Also, with that computer, what kind of monitor should I get? I want this to be a cheap monitor, but to be look extremely good. I'm thinking about 22 inches? Thanks alot.

yes you will, it is a x58 chipset which usually lets you SLI or crossfire.

You might want to step it up a bit and get a 23 or 24 inch so you can take full advantage of that gtx 285 and core i7

Yup, that system has three PCIe x16 slots so you can run up to three cards in SLI or Crossfire.

Acer X233Hbd Black 23" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor

ASUS VH236H Black 23" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor

ASUS VW246H Black 24" 2ms(GTG) HDMI Widescreen LCD Monitor

Are the ASUS 23 and 24 inches the same thing, just different sizes?
