About to by my first Ratel Desktop, as my HP is starting to show it's years.

I'm buying the whole system from System76, including the monitor.

Was wondering how the desktop connected to the monitor. Is it via a VGA cord, HDMI, or something else?

The reason I ask is: My computer is going to be about 6-8 feet from the monitor, so I need to know if I need to get an extension cord.

Also, how can I get more information on the monitor itself. What inputs does it have? If the system contains a VGA cord, can I just use an HDMI instead?
