I bought desktop Dell Inspiron 530. I connected to the internet with cable modem using either ethernet/UBS cable. The Dell Inspiron has no network card==do I need one. They want to give a wireless card. I have to use the cable modem with the ethernet or USB cable. Please help me what hardware or card I need to install in the desktop slot to get this to work. I am a college student on a budget. I do not have a home network or multiple PC. I just need a way to get on the internet using the cable connection. Can you also tell me a cheap monitor for this system. Can you get used monitors–even CRT for cheap price online?I do not have to have the latest LCD monitor. My computer is only for studying not movies DVD or music videos. Any help is appreciated for a computer novice.

you can either buy a credit card pcmcia network card or a usb one
its easiest noadays to get a wireless router to connect to a wireless card
crt monitors are a good deal but not if you have to pay shipping – that is if they make the post office without being broken
just ask around or put up an online ad
people will give them away to a good home or charge only a bit to get rid of them
