Excuse me if I'm wrong, but don't most desktops not have wireless connections? Why would a desktop use wifi when you could plug it in for a better connection?

Especially one that old?

They don't come with them, but you can buy one for it.

I have a wireless card in a PCI express X1 slot on my desktop. I don't use it anymore now that I've managed to snake a cable all the way down the hallway and around two doorways to get a nice wired connection. It took a 100 ft cable.

Actually, wireless networks these days are faster than most wired home networks. You can easily get WiFi of over 300MB, while most people still use 100MB hardware and cables. To go a faster wired you'd have to replace your old router, network adapter and CAT5 cables for a 1000MB router, adapter and CAT6 cables.

one that old maybe but my desktop has a wireless card. Under that logic all home PC's would have to be placed near the router.

The monitor has nothing to do with the age of the actual computer

Can you plug a monitor from 1999 into a desktop from 2013? Doubt it..
#44 to #18 - xerxic (09/18/2013) [-]
Yes, yes you can. The VGA port was standard before 1990, and is still built into current machines. Some people actually prefer CRT monitors for some reason, something about resolution and latency I think.

VGA (BLUE PLUG) has been the standard for a while. New PC's have VGA as well as newer plugs like HDMI or DVI. You can 110% plug in a VGA cable from ANY monitor into almost any PC. You are free to doubt that it works, but I don't get why you're arguing with crazyhindu since you don't really know what you are talking about.

With an entirely unnecessary and redundant converter...

You're definitely missing the point and making an state just to cause an argument xD
User avatar #23 to #21 - crazyhindu (09/18/2013) [-]
uh no you don't need a converter, a good graphics card will have both DVI and VGA probably even and hdmi. so no I'm not missing the point or making any sort of statement oh sorry i meant state to cause an argument I'm making a statement to prove a point.

The fact that you're not even being close to practical is amusing at best.

it should also be noted that old tube monitors are still very popular among people working with paper advertisement, since the collors don't change if you look at it from different angles like it does with most flatscreen monitors.
User avatar #30 to #28 - crazyhindu (09/18/2013) [-]
Practical nigga what are you talking about, I had to use and old tube monitor for a while because I broke my good monitor, shit I'm just saying the age of the monitor has nothing to do with the age of the computer, you said you cannot connect an old monitor to a new one and I said yes you can. Practicality has nothing to do with anything here.

And even if you don't have a graphics card say with a lowly prebuild or even a cheap build with no graphics card you can connect directly to the motherboard most still have vgi ports

My desktop has wireless.
Due to where it is relative to the router, it's useless, but still...
User avatar #11 to #3 - srskate (09/18/2013) [-]
Thats a valid question. It's kind of dumb that people thumbed you down.
User avatar #22 to #11 - lolsaxylol ONLINE (09/18/2013) [-]

Also none of the McDonald's that I have been in have any outlets for you to plug things in Then again I haven't been in every McDonalds
User avatar #4 to #3 - tiddycats (09/17/2013) [-]
You can plug a USB wireless adapter into computers that don't have wireless connection capability so they can link up to a wifi connection.
User avatar #5 to #4 - IAmManbearpig (09/17/2013) [-]
or you could, like, get a pci wireless card for a GOOD wireless connection.
