Ok, so i have an i5 processor with 6GB of RAM on windows 7. System runs fairly well. I am a notorious tab hoarder on my browsers and I have a dual monitor setup with a 19" monitor and a HDMI connected TV for netflix and what not. Whenever I watch videos i get lag issues and more recently I'm getting display driver shut downs. Should I add a video card (currently do not have one) or is there anything else I can do?

I would definitely suggest adding a video card. Integrated graphics can only go so far, especially with dual monitors.

Given a budget, and your system specs, we can recommend you a good choice.

Thanks!

Budget: under $50 would be nice under 100$ for sure I would think. the system is a Dell machine, don't want to invest too much when it works semi-well under low load

Specs:
Windows 7 Home premium - V. 6.17601
Intel i5 760 @2.Ghz
6 GB Ram


And I was wrong apparently I do have a video card. Now the problem goes deeper.

Display - ATI Radeon HD 5450


Anything else more specific you need to know?

Suggestions welcome.

For under $100, I'd recommend the r7 250! Previously known as the HD 7750.

Kyle you've been a great help. What would you say about this one? Decent newegg reviews and can be had for around 60 dollars after rebate. ddr5 1gb

I'm glad to be of help!

That's a little lower in strength, as it's a r7 240, but it will nonetheless be a good quality card. If you can afford the r7 250, it'd be worth the little extra. But either or is fine :)

Don't worry about it! haha

The 1gb GDDR5 beats the 2gb DDr3 by appx. 25% according to the source. So, I vote the Asus (though it says Gigabyte on the benchmark, the model is basically the same) :)
