Terminal Server Graphics Performance Improvement


We have Terminal Server Dell PowerEdge T710 with the standard graphics card it comes with. I was wondering if users Remote Desktop Connections would be better/smoother if we installed dedicated graphics card in the server? The reason I am thinking that is that the server displays at the moment 1024x768 on its monitor and the users connect using the 1280x1024 with all the visual effects and sometimes you can see their windows are a little bit "jerky".

What do you think?

Actually there have been leaps and bounds improvements in this area for the best performance upgrade your server to 2012R2 and upgrade the clients to the latest version. That or spend the same amount or more in remoteFX graphics card.

We are on 2008 R2 with Win 7 HP Thin Clients and my client would like to leave it as it is at the moment.
Could you provide me particular examples of the remoteFX graphics cards please?
