I dont get it.



That thing with the torn edges around it. That is the VGA port. You should have one identical to it on your Monitor. Just plug in the cable.

If you dont have a VGA port on your mobo then you have a different mobo cause that picture was that mobo. So you should have onboard video.

Sorry Mak that's a serial port. VGA ports have 15 pins.

Try to buy a cheap GPU from somewhere, and refund it once your RMA comes in or get a cheap 8400gs of Newegg, and use it while you wait two weeks for your 7950gx2 to come back

Nah Newegg will give a restocking fee, but its always nice to keep a second GPU for back up

Also if you want a dedicated Physics card, you could use the 8400gs to load Physics (requires g80 or higher GPU) since you have a second PCI-e Slot you could also do that

The Benchmarks show that they own any Ageia PhysX PPU.
