ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: I really dont understand why my mobo doesn't have a plug for video, I read in my instruction manual that there were some accesories I could buy, like a COM port, is that what I am looking for?
Yes sorry, I didn't know exactly how to phrase it, it does have those two slots, but I need somewhere to plug my monitors vga cable so I can display whats going on, I guess that would be called onboard VGA, which it looks as though my manual is telling me to either buy a COM port accessory for this or I need a videocard.
I dont need anything badass, just something capable of doing a little, the main use for the PC will be audio recording but I may get into some video editing, nothing thats going to hollywood, maybe just a few youtube videos here or there. also I may want to pop a movie in there from time to time, the machine is in my bedroom, it would be nice to have that capability.
