Dual Screen low power gfx
Jan 28, 2010, 6:38 AM
looking for a video card to do 2x 1920x1080 resolution with windows 7 bells and whistles (no gaming) odd bit of casual photoshop
(i manage on this PC without a gfx card, so i really just want something to take the load off the CPU in my new machine running windows 7)
not too power hungry/hot and about £40 budget

dual screen power

how would Sapphire HD 4550 512MB DDR3 VGA DVI HDMI HDCP PCI-E Graphics Card including Low Profile bracket for £37 cope?
i guess windows 7 and 2 screens can be demanding

that will be more than enough. If all you do is desktop work and no gaming that is more than plenty.
could probably do fine with even less but for 37 pounds you might just aswell get that

Yeah, that would be fine although you can get an HD4650 for less and it's even a semi-capable gaming card;

yea, looks like a good bet
would OCZ Stealth Xtream 500W PSU - 1x PCI-E 6/8pin, 2x SATA 12cm Fan power the system with more than a bit spare? (i'd like a pretty stable system

Yes, that should be more than good enough.
