Your video card will most likely come with DVI to VGA dongles that you could use as well.

is that PSU enought for 2 8800GT? i was reading on other sites that people had 2 8800GTX on that PSU so im guessing it will work with 2 8800GT.

Yes it will work fine. Don't place a quad into that motherboard, how much are you willing to spend on a motherboard?

well i wouldnt like to go above 150 but if you highly recommend it for around that price i will consider it. so if you want you can send a link for one below 150 and if you recommend one for a little bit more expensive post that as well.

thanks

To be honest, if I was in your scenario I'd do the following.
http://www.newegg.co...mp;Tpk=P35-DS3L
http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814150261

If you got one of each you'd be getting roughly the same performance for much less. Please note that motherboard cannot do SLI.

This question is pretty difficult to answer, but I'd recommend it as you will be playing games to their maximium potential. I know at times I have needed more then 2GB of RAM while playing Crysis, and others when I multitask, but I have 2 monitors so this will be easier for me to do so. Just bear in mind that a 32bit OS can only use ~3.3GB of RAM.
