Only if you want a bigger display or if there is a problem with the present one.

You need a DVI to VGA adaptor such as http://www.amazon.co...r/dp/B00006J4LS
This plugs into a DVI port on your card and then the VGA cable from the display plugs into the adaptor.
Please confirm that the cable from your screen does have the VGA type connection before making any purchase.

As an asides, there is no such thing as a stupid question so ask as many as you need to :thumbsup:

I have recently purchased the following hardware see what you think.

I already had the display (here is a suggestion for you) and Windows 8 Pro 64-bit, do you already have an OS disk.

A reasonable list of hardware but a couple of pointers for you are - if this is a gaming build pay a little more for a 24" screen, be careful of the large heat spreaders on the Ram and last but not least consider a different PSU, Corsair is my preferred brand of PSU but they do not appear to have got it quite right with the CX600 model as I have seen a number of reported failures, see the Newegg feedback tab for user reviews

For basic office or course work a 21.5" screen is fine but for gaming don`t cheat yourself and opt for a 24" display.

The TX650 would be my choice of the two and this based on it`s proven reliability, the gaming series is also ok but does not have the same established track record that the TX does, both are over and above the PSU requirement that you need and with this in mind also consider This option, you are welcome BTW :thumbsup:
