Recommended Graphics Specifications

Postby caryxander » Wed Nov 23, 2011 9:55 pm

What is the recommended video requirements for good performance. I'm currently getting choppy video performance with my integrated VGA adapter and better performance with a PCIx video adapter. I'm willing to upgrade to a better graphics card, but I need to know the recommended (rather than minimum rquired) specs first.

I'm installing on an hp ProBook 4710s with the below specs. Will these specs get me the full experience that Zorin OS 5 can deliver?
Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6670 (2.20 GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 800 MHz FSB)
2 GB 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 (discrete)
Microsoft DirectX 10.1 capable

I initially installed it as a test on a PC. That's the one with the choppy display. I'm ready to install it for production on my ProBook... just hoping the graphics chipset can handle it. I was just thinking that there must be a recommended graphics spec such as "you should have at 512MB graphics memory for best performance" or such.

Go into Control Center and look at "Monitors, try dropping the resolution of your screen down a little and see what happens.
