    If I decide not to buy the whole package of a new Windows 8 and 8.1 Desktop PC, will a Windows Vista monitor be compatible to run with Windows 8 and 8.1?

    When I upgraded from 8 Pro to 8.1 Pro I needed new display drivers on the same monitor.

    Will I have to download new drivers manually, or will come as updates? I'm thinking that I will probably have to download them manually.

    Most likely yes, you will have to download the drivers from your monitor manufacturer's website.

    I had to install them manually.

    I use the paid version of DriverMax though.
    It found the needed drivers for me.
