The video card is no good unless i buy a vga adaptor, i believe my monitor is old. My monitor just has a line coming from the back of it and at the end is VGA i think.

Which will let you convert to VGA, also that was including the VAT i think cause there was a lower price and it had plus VAT i think.

Yes a 7600 GT beats it but not a 7600 GS just remember that and you will be fine.
