Hi Guys
Have developed a problem on my Dell desktop wherby I can have lines and discolouration on the display screen. I assume my graphics card is ailing. Can anyone tell me where I can purchase a reasonably priced replacement and what kind of job it is to fit?

Online is the best price. Either Newegg or Tigerdirect. I check Pricewatch from time to time as well. If you supply the model number of the Dell I can make a suggestion as well.

could also be as simple as a bad cord or connection on either end of the cord.

I think that I'd verify that it's a monitor problem, rather than a video card/chip issue...before doing anything.
