    can run Photoshop without graphics card no good alerts
    mini (16GB RAM) with 4000 intel integrated graphics card, can run Photoshop without graphics card no good alerts? In other words performance of this card is appropriate for PS or gaming?

    TO MAKE THE MOST OF A GOOD GRAPHICS CARD EG IN A MAC PRO OR WINDOWS PC, connector does matter eg VGA, DVI, HDMI? MUST BE NEW CONNECTOR OR DOES NOT MATTER?

    Your post is difficult to sort out and understand but what I get from it....

    The Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics chipset can run Photoshop and some games as long as you have an adequate amount of system memory installed. The recommended amount of system memory for that chipset to perform well is 8 GB. The reason is that the HD 4000 can "borrow" up to 1024 MB of system memory for graphics when 8 GB is installed.

    graphics quality displayed on display is matter from connector (MAC(MINI)-DISPLAY) implied you have a real graphics card or 4000 with 8-16GB RAM?
