Asus M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 (ATI Radeon HD4290)

Do you believe the included video chipset (ATI Radeon HD4290) would be adequate or should I buy a better video card?

Thinking of buying this MOBO for my new system which will be used for trading (no games) and general use.

Any feedback on my proposed system would be appreciated.

  1. Best answer
    i think if u are just trading you might want to spend more on monitors and less on things like a hexacore, a 750 watt psu and 6gb ram
  2. Good point, thanks. I thought I had a decent monitor but I'll reconsider now and read some more on that part of my system.

  3. Also...

    1) You want dual channel memory not triple channel, so buy in sets of two.

    2) PSU is nice but you can have your system running on a 500 to 550 watt PSU and still be overkill.
  4. Thanks. I'll go see what savings changing both of those will give me.
