Product Shot 1 The Pros:Can handle a dual monitor setup right out of the box without any elaborate setup procedure. Good support for multiple types of displays of various sizes. HD video displays smoothly, never creates flicker or screen tear effects.

The Cons:Can't handle Photoshop without some noticeable lag issues with many of the brushes, and games lag noticeably. "silent" card isn't actually silent, an audible hiss is noticeable from the fan - not a big noise but not completely silent either.
