Just remember, though, ATI cards are good, but if you get the new ones, 
before you install JAWS, I would urge you to go in and disable the start-up 
application for it or JAWS will not work one little bit.  Trust me, I know 
this from very recent firsthand experience.  Also, if you use any type of 
magnification turn off the secondary driver as well because most don't 
support second monitors anyway, I mean the magnification products.
