Hi,

If i'm not displaying any picrues or any GUI, for example, a CLI in linux or dos, do i still need a graphic card?

Or is there a built-in display adapter kind of thing inside the monitor?

thnx

The monitor itself has no build in default. You need a graphics card, no matter how simple your picture is, even if it's only black and white text. However, for DOS you will only need a very cheap card. Not some powerful 3D anything card.
