Hey Guys. I currently am running an Abit AV8 motherboard and an ATI Radeon X800 Pro graphics card. I feel like I am running a graphics card for gaming, when I do nearly none. I am a business man and have a 22" widescreen LCD DVI monitor. What would be my best choice for simply, cheap videocard, which will give me the quickest performance and best image quality? I do not need the benefits for gaming, just want the BEST picture quality and quickest speed. Will a videocard really make a difference in day to day work with office documents, email, and web browsing? What does everyone suggest I go with? Please advise.
i just got a HIS x1650pro iceQ for 250aud (online for 178aud) and im a daily user, lite gamer, i tested oblivion and it runs fine on medium settings at 1440 x 900 good thing about the card it dosnt require a ne extra power it runs off the pci which is great its also 20db but u can get a slient veriosn for an extra 10aud but noise dosnt matter to me. all my fan speeds = 14000rpm lol
Any $50 - $75 ATI or nVidia card will be good enough to support a 22" LCD screen if gaming is not a priority. Speed in 2D graphics is not much of an issue, therefore the power of the video card will not matter at all.
