I have a question about getting the monitor up and running. On the motherboard i do not have a DVI input or VGA. But i do have a video card i'm going to install. I'm building a new computer and installing the motherboard, cpu, dvd, power supply and video card. If i hook up the DVI cable to the video card will the monitor automatically come on or do i have to find another way to install the monitor.

As long as you make the connections and power is supplied...the monitor should work automatically.

You can adjust the screen resolution for the video card (to match that of the monitor) after booting into your O/S.

I always turn my monitors on first before powering the system, but it really should not make any difference which is first :thumbsup:.
