  1. also would i hav to get a low profile? whats the diffence?
  2. You support PCI-E so you can pretty much use any card. Low profile means the card itself has small dimensions. Also, we need to know the rest of your specs to find a good GPU. PSU/CPU/RAM/Monitor Resolution/What Games
  3. 1024x764 res im using a sansui hdtv with VGA and i dont know what pcu is

    Should be excellent. Play any game maxed at that resolution. Very low power consumption as well.
  7. sounds perfect, thanks for helping me out, do you know how long shipping usualy is?
  8. 2-3 days. Pretty fast.
  9. one question though i have that blue cord (VGA) and a s-cable slot, i dont either of them on that card :(
  10. would it matter? what card my monitor is plugged into? like i get this one, with those three slots wich i dont have or can use, and use my vga in the slot its in now? would i still get the graphics from the new card?
  11. The graphics card comes with a DVI to VGA adapter. And you need to plug the monitor into this card.
