Default Re: Building A New Computer (NEED INPUT)

Quick question before I go buying the video card. Will this video card work with my monitor? I'm not sure if the interface types are compatible. If they aren't compatible can anyone suggest a good video card that is compatible?

Yeah... I think I'm stuck with this video card ( Newegg.com - HIS H577FK1GD Radeon HD 5770 (Juniper XT) 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card w/ Eyefinity )... I don't really need multiple video card compatability. If the card can't handle my graphics somewhere in the future, then I will just get a new card. This 1 has outstanding core and memory clock speeds for its price.

I love that 5770... great card. Overclocks really well too. If you already have the card, and want to get a new one, get a 5750 and run it in crossfire.

I changed my mind again about my video card. LOL. It turns out the fast cheap 1 I found is only 128 bit not 256 bit

Current choice listed in status update above.
