      Is it going to be used for gaming? If so, you can normally put a command in the .exe to bypass the VGA settings etc therefore eliminating the need for a decent VGA card.

      We have nothing special in our server for the Gaming Clan.

      HP ATI Radeon X1300 Pro (256MB DH) PCIe Graphics Card
