x2 is a range of dual core processors from AMD. The HD 3450 is a graphics card. If your monitor only has a VGA input and your graphics card only has DVI output, you will need a converter, usually cards come with one or two of these. Usually DVI is white and VGA is blue but it may be different in your case.

Thank you. Still want to know if there is any significantly better processor for only a bit more cash?(like passing a benchmark where things get cheaper)

Also, could you please post a link to that hd 3450? I search newegg and there's so many different cards with that in the name..

Here is a Hd 3450 with both vga and s video outputs

Newegg.ca - SAPPHIRE 100233L Radeon HD 3450 256MB 64-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

There really isn't any cpu that is faster than the x2 7750 without spending significantly more.

There really isn't a need for a more expensive cpu since the x2 7750 would have no problem running the stuff you mentioned.

It says on newegg that that particular model runs really hot. Could that end up being a problem?
