    From my experience integrated GPU is sufficient to easily drive 3 HD monitors, If your system is setup properly for DAW purposes and with enough RAM you will not feel any advantages with dedicated GPU which will just drain more power and generate more heat and noise.

    ok nice, well that looks oddly good. you had it running for 20 sec and no dropouts to talk about it seems

    click stop and you will get a report but it seems you dont have specific driver causing latency and audio dropouts. so its not the typical HD or Graphics driver issue here at least.

    dont know if you later specified exactly what problems you meant with "performance disappointment"?
    have you tested other ports and disabling the energy saving options in bios and control panel?

    you did see Studio One 4.1 is released? I would try that too, since S1 4.0 and some systems have been known for having problems.

    for audio production YES! it is better for your PC, because of:
    - plugins have graphic-heavy GUIs, super-high quality images of GUIs, hidpi/retina, fps, blah blah blah etc.
    - spectrum analyzers/meters/scopes in high-resolution modes with fast speed and no latency etc..
    - use of more than one monitor
    - maybe something more, so buying a very cool powerful graphic card won't hurt you and your system and your workflow/speed of graphic processes/quality of work/visual works etc

    Get a Radeon RX 560. Rule of thumb is = 1GB gpu memory per monitor. Get a 4GB gpu in case you want to expand to 3 monitors in the future. It's around $150. It also does not need power from the PSU. It gets its power from PCIe slot directly.

    Thanks,now I know what I have to do and what I have to see!
    I think I will buy a Radeon in the near future.
    And even if my pc is not the best of the best for processing audio,it is "good" anyway...

    If you are someone who uses 10 different tabs on Google Chrome, opens multiple applications in the background, such as, Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Excel, etc., then the scenario calls for a graphic card if you do not want to work on a really slow performing computer; especially on older computers with a processor such as Intel Core i3 2nd generation, 4 GB of RAM, 5400 RPM mechanical hard drive, etc.

    How many watts is your PSU? If you're having problems when the graphics card is in use, then you may need a bigger PSU.
