I am buying a new GPU. I am building a new computer going with the Asus M4A77TD Pro, Amd AM3 Phenom II X3 cpu, and my main concern is that I cant find a video card that I am interested in because I need one with a VGA port on it? I want to go with a ATI 4850 that is crossfire rated so I can buy a second gpu later. Can someone help me out?
You'll have a hard time finding a card with a VGA port, but almost every card on the market today will support VGA through a DVI-VGA adapter, and they almost all should come with an adapter in the package when you buy it.
Have you considered going with a 5750 or 5770? Because that "eventual" upgrade of an additional 4850 might be hard to find, and about that time the 5750's should hopefully be down to $100. I've got nothing but love for my 5770.
