You know, I hadn't thought of that since the 9-pin VGA days.* Thanks for reminding me, although I probably already have a spare monitor somewhere, too. I'm pretty sure the card would see the monitor even without a power cord, since I really don't have a single unused AC outlet left in that area.

I wouldn't think appreciably so, but is there any performance advantage in not having the GPU drive a monitor or dummy plug?

*I actually seem to remember building a VGA dummy plug using a few resistors.
