What is the make/model of your monitor?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
Monitor is Gateway i do not know model but 19", 1440X900

Unfortunately, the monitor does not have a built-in web cam so you would need to purchase one.

You can buy a web cam for around $15-$20 at a local electronic store.

Best Buy would have this, wouldn't they? and is the installation difficult as I am handicapped? does this also include the sound card or is that something else I have to purchase?

Yes, they would.

The install is plugging it into your computer so around 1-2 minutes.
