My friend told me that I should not buy a GTX 260 because it wouldnt support my monitor. With this problem in my head, he still said that not even a converter would help me get good graphics. I wanted to knw, I have a Core 2 Duo, 2 gig Ram (DDR 2), 19 inch LCD DELL, PCI-Express 16x. Will there be any problems installing and using this VGA <Nvidia GTX260> ? Will there be a heat problem because im not looking forward to overclock?

It should be fine. The E177FP is a 17" monitor though...

It's actually probably more of a card than you need. I'm assuming your using 1280x1024. You could get something a little cheaper probably and be fine. 4850 maybe. What are you going to be using it for?

Your friend doesn't know what he's talking about. Video cards have DVI and VGA ports, or 2 DVIs with a VGA to DVI adapter.

Any video card within the last 8 years is compatible with basically any monitor.

With a 17" or 19" monitor using a resolution of 1280x1024, a GTX260 will max out any game in existence. (even Crysis to a degree).

You can comfortably play Crysis at Very High settings with AA turned to x4 or so. Everything else (COD4, COD5, GTA4, Fallout3, etc) and your graphics card won't even break a sweat.
