WHAT'S IN THE BOX

* XFX GeForce 7800 GT Video Card
* User Manual
* Multi-Language Installation Guide
* XFX Driver CD
* Component Dongle
* 2 S-Video Cables
* Power Cable
* 2 DVI to VGA Adapters



That last entry is a couple of adapters so the DVI ports can plug into a standard monitor. This card is fine for your needs.

Well the monitor it will work with its not a specific thing it will work on whatever resolution and frequency you set it too so its as compatible as you make it.

PSU as long as the power is above its minimum and its a decent quality psu(as in not a nameless generic one) you are fine.

my power supply is 300 w and it says its 12v with a current ratting of up to 19a, but the card required 350 w and 12v with current ratting of at least 20a. where can i find a power supply like that. Do you know if my power supply would handle that card.

get an Enermax 535 Watt one, they aren't cheap but they aren't expensive, just see what there is. 535 Watts is enough for any thing you throw at it except maybe X1900XTXs in crossfire lol. also take a look at Antec PSUs, they are good as well but Enermax are the PROS. it's like you know, AMD are the best and Intel are ok, won't kill but still not as good
