    I don't know much about video cards. But you will need more than a 350 watt power supply for what you are using it for ;).

    It comes w/ 2 DVI to VGA adaptors.......

    At bottom of specs...whats included in package...or take a look at the pics

    EDIT: I had read about this though and it is in alot of the reviews....The specified requirements say 450w Min PSU but it looks like you need one alot bigger than that ... supposedly there is a short list of specific PSU's that work on these OC'ed cards.....May be better off w/ the 1st link not super clocked
