Ive recently just purchased a new epox MotherB, but to my amazement there was no standard Monitor port, instead there are 2 COM ports, which according to the manual there should be!

Does this mean i nead say a usb monitor, or r there graphics cards which have a monitor port, or can u get adapters or maybe PCI cards for the monitor.

Or am i missing something on the MB?

any help would be grateful.

If the board does not have built in graphics you will have to get a video card. I would guess without knowing what board you have that it may not as it appears you have read the manual quite thoroughly.

Some of the others here will probably better be able to recommend a video card better than I can.:)

which epox motherboard do you have?

to the best of my knowledge (without looking it up as well), i think very few epox motherboards have onboard video.

if this is the case then you will need to purchase an agp video card.

if you need some help on buying a card then post back and I or someone else will help you.

All video cards will have a monitor connection. (assuming by "port" you mean a femal connector on the card to plug the male connector from the monitor onto the card)

you don't have to worry about the card be compatible with the chipset. you must need to make sure you have an agp slot for the video card (chances are you do, unless you bought a really old motherboard).

just install the card into the agp slot and you'll be ready to go.
