dual monitor buying help

hey guys, i just want to know if the monitors i was planning to buy will go with the GTX 660 i was planning to buy, and if i needed any other adapters or whatever.

i was going to use 2 of these monitors: http://www.microcenter.com/product/381866/S2230MX_215_Ultra_Slim_LED_Monitor

with this GPU: http://www.microcenter.com/product/400675/02G-P4-2662-KR_NVIDIA_GeForce_GTX_660_Superclocked_2048MB_GDDR5_PCIe_30_x16_Video_Card


thanks a lot in advance, sorry if this is easy stuff, iv never done any more than one monitor and dont want to buy all the parts and have them not go together. :)

  1. 2 dvi cables and youll be set

    do i need to purchase these or does the monitor/GPU come with them
  4. You need to purchase them as that monitor oddly only comes with vga cables. The gpu does come with 1 vga to dvi adapter though.

    can you link me to a 21.5" 1080x1920 monitor that DOES come with the cables. you said oddly so im assuming that they normally do, its just i liked the price of that one.

    actually just found this, does this have them?: http://www.microcenter.com/product/399204/G226HQL_Bbd_215_Widescreen_LED_Monitor#
  6. Yes, under specs you can see package contents. Although the viewing angles are poorer and others complain about the colors.
  7. how about 2 of these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009484&nm_mc=OTC-Channel&cm_mmc=OTC-channel-_-Monitors+-+LCD+Flat+Panel-_-Acer+America-_-24009484&srccode=cii_12479&cpncode=27-20328111&DEPA=0&refer=channel&CMP=OTC- im pretty sure these come with all 3 types of cables, and are excellent monitors. i plan on buying 3 later this summer

    actually it seems these dont come with them, however they are great spec wise. if your not dead set with them coming with cables here are some links.
