I wont trust ATi as such (for uninitiated, RS480M2 uses ATi chipset). Traditionally they have been good at providing some amazing solutions but always managed to have loads of issues with drivers for the devices. ATi Radeon series is a classic example. So better stick to A8N-E + GPU rather than RS480M2. You may have to dig deeper into your (or your dad's) pocket, but its worth every paisa.
