I/O and Multimedia Devices

As a computer technician, you must be familiar with a wide range of input/output (I/O) devices, including keyboards, mice, monitors, biometric devices, projectors, cameras, and video cards. Before you attach any of these to a computer system, you must first research which I/O devices and expansion cards are best suited for your computer’s configuration; for example, it is common to find more than one video card in high-end PCs, especially those that require more than one monitor. In this situation, video cards are needed to handle more graphics, 3D rendering, and gaming applications. The appendix helps you practice your research skills in finding appropriate I/O devices.

Both video cards were found at http://www.tigerdirect.com and both have the option for future upgrades for display type (VGA and/or DVI).
