Hi ziphedz, Have you thought about an add on GFX card and disabling the onboard GFX ? , There are many good cheap models available nowadays that won't break the bank

Hi ziphedz, Congratulations on your new baby, I'm afraid you are pretty much stuck with what you have then until you can afford to make the upgrade
