Is there a reason you need a video card and can't just use the integrated graphics?

Issues with the drivers. Asus, see rant, MS and Intel cant find the issue. For me, I am sick of dealing with it. 6 days is more than enough.

The drivers will be strictly Intel, not Asus.

Really, you don't have to spend anything. Get the IGP going.
