Hello,
My Mobo blew up and I am given another board in replacement. The board is Asus P7H55/USB3. http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P7H55USB3/#specifications.
The problem is, this board does not have any video out (D-Sub or HDMI or DVI). So, I need to buy a display card / graphics card, so that I can have a D-Sub port to connect my CRT monitor.
The PC will be used just for normal office applications. No gaming at all.
Can somebody please suggest me a card, just for the sake of getting my monitor connected to that board? I need a cheap card that will suffice for my daily office use. The card should also last long (good quality durable).
My budget is INR 500-1000. Or what shoud it be for a durable card?
If anybody can help me out??
Thanks!
Some more info:
Please suggest me a card that is compatible to my board. It takes the first generation processors. LGA 1156 Socket.

Thanks for your suggestions hitech. I would like to go in for new cards only at this point. The 8mb card does not support windows 7/8. Am using Windows 7/64bit.
What should be my budget for a better new card? INR 2000?
Thanks!

Thanks Guys. I did see those cards before on flipkart. Are those compatible with my mobo? Actually, I am nuts about these cards. Never had / used any.
Which is a better brand to buy a card? And what do these names mean AMD/ATI Radeon or GeForce 210.
Thanks for help!

Yes they are compatible with your mobo. For your purpose of just needing to connect the display, either of them will work just fine.
AMD/ATI Radeon and NVIDIA GeForce are the brand names for these GPU's.

Both are compatible with your mobo. Both are equally good. AMD have a little edge (DX 11) ovr GeForce (DX 10.1) ...

Ok , thanks for your help!
One more quick question. I am using Intel Core i3 540 3.06 processor. It has built in HD graphics. Will that create any problems? The cards have their own GPU and even the processor has its own. So just want to be sure if there will be any conflicts?
Please help.
Thanks!

No! If you install an external gpu. It 'll be priortized. You processor gpu 'll not have any use.
Btw, how did you get a different mobo as a replacement? If the old had the D-Sub or any port to connect the display. you should have got the same mobo.
