      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A decent budget end card

      Overall I have found that the Radeon X300 works fairly well to boost your computer's graphics capabilities, and it definitely is an improvement over integrated or embedded graphics that most computers come with, and has helped my computer run graphics intensive games more smoothly. Compared to other graphics cards from the other main brands, it is at the budget end, and I would recommend if you want to use your computer for any seriously graphics intensive programs to invest in some more MB, as 128 is fairly low compared to many others on the market, and of this it borrows quite a bit from your system's RAM. I have read that it does not support Vista's DirectX 10 standard, but I do not use Vista so this has not been an issue for me.
      It also advertises that it provides another VGA connection so you can run two monitors from your desktop, as it is capable of outputting signals in a form compatible with TV's. This works fairly well, although I've never found any real use for it. Overall, it is recommended for casual gamers, but those looking for more should really invest in one with more memory that will keep up with new programs.

    Do you need dual VGA connections so you can use two monitors on your ThinkCentre or Lenovo 3000 desktop system? By adding the 128MB ATI RADEON X300 SE VGA, VGA PCI-e Dual Head graphics adapter, you can improve overall system performance, experience superior image quality (depending on attached monitor) and help increase your productivity whenever you encounter: the demands of graphic-intensive software for desktop publishing, animation, presentation, and other multimedia formats; the need to view multiple operations such as manufacturing or financial transactions simultaneously across dual monitors.

    By installing a separate graphics adapter with dedicated memory and superior graphics processor (compared to embedded graphics) to perform all graphics functions, you can significantly reduce the workload on the system Central Processing Unit (CPU) and main memory resources for demanding graphics tasks. This enables your latest software applications to run faster and look better, while improving overall system performance.
