    Finally getting an LCD. :blue: 21.6ich for 180$ new w/ 3yr warrenty. Not a samsung or anything but respectable.

    I want to use the monitor to watch movies on and since it has a HDMI (or DVI .. which I could use w/ an adapter) input I'd like a video card that has DVI on it.

    If you guys could. Would you suggest some cards for me to look out for on the sales sites. I'd like to buy used (for cheap), but could buy new if it's not very expensive. I don't game, weeell.... every blue moon I like to fire up counter-strike (like once every 2 months) but that's it.

    So with that said I'm sure you guys have questions. Let me see if I can cut-em off at the pass.

    1. Need PCI-E.
    2. Looking to spend less that 65$.

    Can't think of anything else you guys need to know.
