It does help, thanks, Eric. I may have missed the cord adaptor
that was stuck in the box. Need help to open/check. Meanwhile,
I need to look at the specs for this Dell 8200 to see what kind
of card is in there. What's there is a jack with two rows of
sockets. I'm guessing this is the standard Dell "DVI" connector,
yes, no, other? :-)
Also, in your opinion, since I'm not a gamer and just want to
display at extreme most 1600x1200, do I need anything seriously
upscale? I've seen and skipped past lots of questions about lots
of drivers. So let's say that I went totally ape and bought some
AGP card with 256M of memory:: do we have a driveer for those
kinds of very high end cards?
PS: Does anybody know of a website that 'splains VGA, SVGA,
EVGA, and all the rest? I've been seriously guilty of being
lazy; I'm fessing up! ....
