Hi, I am wondering if the -integrated- Intel X4500 graphics card is good enough to handle large photoshop files (500MB+ PSD files...) and allow me to paint in photoshop without the image lagging. I have no idea whether the lag is due to a poor graphics card memory or computer memory. The computer I want to buy has 8GB of DDR3 ram, and a 2.5GHz Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 processor I think. I dont do any 3D work or gaming and I dont intend to run a billion programs at once.. Just photoshop, the internet, and winamp or something.
If this card is not good enough, will I be able to override it with a card that is a different brand?
Sorry, I did notice there were many threads questioning this same card, however I didnt find any threads relating to my exact situation.
I initially thought this was an AMD processor but it turned out to be Intel in the store.. Im not doing a custom job on this or anything because its a package deal and is a great value. Its a desktop. Comes with an amazing monitor so its cheaper than if I bought all the components separately!
