Can an led monitor work without a video card?

My 13 year old CRT monitor short circuited today. I do not have a video card.I am planning to buy a new monitor and I've heard led displays are really good.I have a pentium dual core e5700, a 450W power supply and about 1 GB of RAM. And will this one work with my cpu: Dell S2240L? And could you recommend me which one to buy? I am thinking AOC.

  1. You'd need a converter from dvi/hdmi//whatever the monitor supports to vga...unless it has vga on it already. Your motherboard probably only has a vga out. It will work but it might lag on the higher native resolution, on some programs
  2. Most displays still have VGA in.

    Yes, it will work on integrated graphics.

    Yes my mobo has only VGA out. But some backlit led displays have a vga port.Right? But I do not want true hd or something like that. I just want something that draws less power and gets the job done. I just check my e-mails,watch some videos on youtube,microsoft office,pdfs and that is all. So should I still go for an led?
  4. It should be fine doing those things.

    Most do. I've never run into one that doesn't, except for the ridiculously high end ones that make FHD look cheap.

    LED (which is a misnomer; it's LED-backlit LCD. We don't call other ones CCFLs do we?) is a minor improvement in picture quality, and a moderate improvement in power usage. I'd suggest getting one, but really the cheapest FHD screen is my advice.
