Graphics card RAM for 2560x1600 no-gaming
I'm getting a 2560x1600 monitor for use in software development; I do not play games. Is it necessary to have 2gb RAM on the graphics card I get?

The built-in graphics on this HP machine don't go past 1920x1080, so I need a card. For $50 I got an EVGA GT 520 with 2mb and 2 dual-link DVI connectors -- can't complain that it's too expensive!
Thanks for the reply.
