USB Monitors?

a little help needed, my mobo dosent have an agp graphics slot and the onboard graphics are a bit dodgy (sometimes it starts sometimes it dosent) well since christmas is coming up i wondered if any of you could point me in the direction of a relatively good monitor (that plugs in to my comp via USB) o and it HAS to be in the U.K.

thanks in advance

i have never heard of a Monitor that plugs into USB, but you could always get a PCI vid cad. Thats what i did when i didnt have an AGP slot. Then again, i did only have 2 PCI slots......

You can get a PCI GeF2 MX from for 76 goes from: (all incusive of VAT)

Dabsvalue S3 Savage 8MB PCI for 12.33

Creative GeForce 2 MX 200 32MB PCI for 54.05

Hercules 3D Prophet Kyro 64MB PCI VO for 63.44

GeForce 4 Mx420 64MB PCI VO for 71.67

Or if you're feeling flush, the PNY Quadro 4 400NVS Quad 64MB PCI for a piffling 734.37.....

That's about it for PCI video cards. Any of them (bar the Savage!) will give you an increase in performance......

We are stuck with technology when what we really want is just stuff that works.
How do you recognise something that is still technology?
A good clue is if it comes with a manual...

As much as I despise the MX lineup, the GF4 MX420 is the best of those cards listed for the $$
