  1. Best answer
    looks good to me, just saying even if its a non gaming build u should get a low-mid end GPU for another 100 or so
  2. Just realized I posted this in the wrong forum. Unsure how to move it using the ipad.

    Anyway, I have a xfx9800gtx+. An old card I know but without needing a card for gaming, I was hoping this would suffice. Rally just looking for dual monitor use in the future when I pickup another matching monitor.
