Recommendation on Graphics Cards
Posted on 2006-04-17
On my 2.5Ghz Dell 8200 with 1GB RAM, I recently bought a Samsung 214T to use instead of my Sony 20" Trinitron. I'm running on a 3 year old GeForce 4 420MX (64MB AGP), which I got because it has TV out.
I'd like to get a new graphics card, one that has two monitor outputs, so I can run the Sony (or a smaller Sony CRT) for color checks. Also, the 214T "stutters" a little when I drag a complex window.
I use the system primarily for web design and software development.
Having TV out might still be nice, but doesn't seem to be that important (there are other ways to achieve that effect)
I'd like to get a fairly good card ($) , but don't foresee gaming on this box.
Any suggestions on graphics cards, or how to go about making this decision, would be appreciated.
