Please tell me if both the monitor and the graphics cards are good choices. If they are not, please recommend others at about the same price point.
This is my first build and I am about to finalize purchases, but I want to double check these last few things before I do so
Thanks for your help.
Also, did I read the rebate correctly? Can it be redeemed regardless of where one purchases the monitor? If so, I plan to order from walmarts website because the shipping is 1 dollar and returns will be easier.
I highly recommend syncmaster monitors, I've used a selection of them at work and home and have nothing bad to say about them!
You should be able to run the sound through your second monitor, there should be an option to choose that output in your sound card / audio driver's options. I'm running the newest version of Realtek HD audio manager and it will let me do it.
