Question question

I saw that some video cards only have 2 DVI ports out the back of them. What type of monitor hooks up to that? I have a VGA plug on my monitor.

Lots of monitors now come with DVI and AVG. There are converters for people that do not have a monitor with a DVI.

I would definitly wait for the 7800gs. It will probably fairly expensive but the 6800 should go down in price at the same time.
