Last Modified: 2013-11-09

I just build a new machine... with a Asus P7h55-Mpro MOBO, and an i 3 530.  however the video display is lacking.  i find it hard to read the desktop icons ... there are shadows ( slightly )... i am using hte
MOBO video...
I realy do not want to spend the money , but do you think that normal static displaysw will be more briliiant with a graphic card.

i also notice that at 1280 x 1024   i get small text and every thing else... i have another machine with a graphic card... and it displays so much better..

i woul dlove to hear people's thoughts.

i am not talking about gaming here.
