I fully understand, hence reason for me overlooking that particular pricelist all this while.

Yup i understand about the specifications part, but i just want to know if based on this GPU core and the 1gb VRAM, can it still drive 3xFHD mointors smoothly with 1 playing a video?

My currently sapphire 5450 512mb is fail at doing 1 FHD and 1 17inch.

Thank you!
Should be enough. Actually i also don't know why your current card will lag..

It's not about the Vram that's causing the lag. More towards processing which is due to your CPU. The amount of ram plays a part too.

Ya lor, really that jia lat? not doubting you, but i've been mointoring CPU usage and during those instances it never goes above 30+ % leh.

I do agree it could be the ram though, 3GB is the max i can go since this is a DDR2 system. Not cost effective to go any further. That's why i thought a SSD will help give it 1 or 2 more years of life.

I think so...but i nv bought asus graphic b4, but might be or just get amd 7870 or back to lower end like 6870...if lastly the price and performance does really match wat i want den i will go get it. but i still have my doubts on ASUS LOUD Fan on Full Speed. Well for gaming use high fan to cool down and auto speed for idle and normal work.
