Need GPU w/ i7 2500H For Business/Photo Editing? Dual DVI Wanted.

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Would I be well advised to get a graphics card for use with an Intel i7 2500H Sandy Bridge CPU with integrated graphics?

I don't game. I use personal and small business accounting software Quicken and Quickbooks; standard business apps such as Word and Excel; and I do photo editing on the same machine with Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop and other photo editing apps.

I do want to run dual monitors, likely at 1600 x 1200, like the Dell FP2001 I have now. If I'm not mistaken, the H67 chipsets will support dual DVI, is that correct? And will they go to 1600x1200?

If I'm not mistaken:

the H has integrated graphics, but doesn't allow overclocking the CPU.

the K allows overclocking, but requires a separate GPU.

In short, you do not need a video card to run dual monitors with H67.

Hi. Thanks for that link. It says H67 has multimonitor support with Windows 7.


How about Windows XP Pro? That is the only OS I have now. Could I keep using it?

I don't see why not.
