It's not about the card, but the display device, (the monitor),
itself, and the lack of decent font/symbol size control for newer
High Def monitors.  On a new/fresh OS install the fonts are so
small that you need an electron microscpe just to see that something
is actually there.  Trying to read whats on the system settings
page is a real pain.
