Hi, not sure why you gave your name as the problem.,as I believe you are looking for a monitor. It would be useful to know exactly what graphics card you have as there are so many cards in the 4300 to 4500 series. But Do you have a DVI connection on your graphics card? Something like this. and or a VGA, this.

Most modern monitors have several connections to choose from so you should have no difficulty connecting your graphics card (GPU) to the monitor.

how do i find out what graphic card i got

1)Download and install CPU-Z.


2)Open up your PC and take it out and have a look.

I like the look of that CPU-Z Chronos the 2nd, which is best to download? is it the one at the top of the list '1.62 setup, english' ?

Unless you can speak Chinese it would probably be best to go for the English

Have a look at their other software while your there.good little company this.

Chronus, lol :) what's those 'ROG' G1 and OC' versions then? (I'm thinking if I can't decide then dwhiteley may have problem too)

  Chronos the 2nd 15:57 31 Jan 2013

ROG. Republic of Gamers edition. ROG is high end and expensive kit.

OC. I would imagine is Over-clock version.

No idea what the other one means.

Thanks Chonus, so dwhiteley (and me) want the purple one '1.62 setup, english' or the zip of it. Just wanted to make sure.
