HD Graphics card and editing question

So I've got the new Canon Xh A1s and a new suped up computer on order and being shipped to my house in the next week but I have a few HD questions regarding HD editing and graphics.

1st, is it possible to capture and edit (with CS4 Premiere Pro) without having an HD monitor or HD graphics card? The computer on order comes with the Integrated NVIDIAŽ GeForceŽ 7050 graphics, I'm usure if it has an HDMI output slot. (I will eventually aquire those soon)

2nd, if my graphics card does not have HDMI. can anyone recommend an affordable HD graphics card that will do the job but not be too outrageously expensive?

3rd, If I'm using a standard VGA monitor, the HD will still be there even though you don't see it right? Sorry, HD is a new world for me as I'm sure it was for all of you at one time.

Thanks much!

The exact requirements for your graphics card are on the Adobe website. Premiere is largely video-card agnostic. It doesn't use the card much, so almost any current card is fine.
