I've seen a few threads on this but none that answered a couple of questions I have...
I have a recently rebuilt computer running Windows 7 Home Premium an Athlon II x4 on a Gigabyte Mobo with 4GB RAM and integrated ATI Radeon HD 3300 with 128 MB DDR3 Sideport memory.
I originally thought the integrated graphics would be enough for the basic things I'm doing. I do not do ANY 3d gaming. The computer is used for graphic and web design and occasional light video editing. But the Aero performance on the Windows Experience is 2.0 and I'm seeing sluggish window transitions.
So, I'm looking to spend as little as possible for a new card. What's the best bang for the buck on a dedicated video card for a non-gamer? Here's what I need:
* Low price
* HDMI out
* Support 1900x1200 for my 27" monitor
* Great Aero performance
