Radeon X1250 Graphic Controller, Shared upto 512MB Memory, thats what I have now. Its an internal card, but it has hdmi port, a vga and a Dvi. I recently bought a 22" widescreen monitor and I am currently using my old 15" :) montior and hooking it vga. The monitor does have a DVI port on the back ( the old one) but I haven't got a Dvi splitter yet. It's not working out so great... In fact pretty bad. I have to juggle the on on swicthes during boot up cause the new monitor with not be primary till after boot up. or if I take off the old monitor during boot up it takes me forever to get it back on and ... let's not even get into the icon sorting... ( :wave: ) sooooo, long story longer.... I have a spot left for a graphics card... but I want to get all i have .. if not more. I don't overclock or anything like that...


first) is the a way to make my current set-up work for now...
Second ) which would be the best card for what I want to do...


OHHHH I should tell you that that I am photographer and getting into 3d modeling, video production and using it as a media hub. I am not a big pc gamer, but would like to concentrate on image processing, getting a bigger (42" vizo tv) to hook my computer up too for editing, and video . and buy another 22" monitor and have it work flawlessly dual screen. :) can anyone point my in the right direction.
