Here's the PC parts picker info: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/K2L4Q7. My main needs are fast processing in MATLAB. I'm not really a game person, but do use some software that is for visualizing graphics so it would be nice to have decent graphics capabilities. Here are my main questions:
1. Can I just use the onboard graphics or will they be terrible? Does anybody have experience using onboard graphics and changing BIOS settings to make them a little better? Is the cheapo graphics card I put in there going to be much better than the onboard graphics if I dedicate 1GB of memory to them.
2. I havn't done this in a while - there's not anything wierd going to happen with fitting the power supply/motherboard or anything else in the case, right? (I know this is a stupid question)
3. Other comments?
4. Another easy one - Can I use dual monitors, one VGA and one DVI with the outputs from either the motherboard or the graphics card included?
All in all it's a $560 build with the graphics card and $500 without it which I think isn't too bad.
Thanks in advance!
