Would the Intel i3 IGP be 'strong' enough for large IPS displays? I've been researching on these displays and almost every customer review suggests using a med-end dedicated video card. But I know that the i3 is used in media players with no problem.... Can anyone explain a solution?

if you aren't doing anything graphics intensive, you will be fine

@mindless728: an ignorant comment as usual.

The video subsystem of the i3/i5 matches or beats many mid-range discrete cards. It is the D3D gaming capability which lags behind. See reviews at www.missingremote.com. Even the older G45's video playback is nothing to sneeze at.

and you can keep believing that all you want, simple fact is that the intel IGP's are horrible (even the new ones in the i3/i5), they in no way have anywhere close to the power of a midrange card (or lowend/IGP or NV or ATI, even outside of D3D apps)

though for just simple office work, it will work fine (like i said before)
