Can I use any flat panel monitor with my 3 year old Dell computer?

Q: I have an older Dell computer, probably 8 years old. I would like to get a new flat monitor. Will just any monitor work?

    Yes, as long as the monitor supports “VGA Input” it will work with your computer.

    Thanks. How do I know if it supports ‘VGA Input?’

    Picked as best answer

    1) They basically all support VGA. You’ll be hard pressed to find a computer monitor they won’t support VGA.

    2) It will say so on the box, or in the product description. This might also be called “Analog RGB”.
