one thing that i would look for in a video card would be a dvi hook up... best thing (all monitors are compatible with that hook-up, well the majority).

no you dont need an s cable, it is just that hook up on the output of the video card. if you look at more of the video cards, you will see that there are dvi, s vid, and other output slots. dvi is what I would go with. I would guess that your monitor came with a dvi cable when you bought it.

I guess..? I have just a normal monitor. It has 3 rows of 5 pins. I'm guessing that is DVI. I'm going to get the lowest grade video card until I can get a 256 MB radeon card.

OK... I know what a VGA is. I was wondering WTF about DVI... not many monitors have that.
