Is a Video Card the same thing as a Graphics Card??….just very curious…i noticed that my computer has a 64MB of shared video memory which i think is the reason why i cant watch HD video smoothly…am i right…i want to upgrade to at least a 256MB video card…Do you think that my problem is because of the very little 64MB video memory….I saw a graphics card with 256MB for only 40 bucks and i think imma buy it…PLEASE HELP…
what system do u have?
check your specs, and see if you have either a PCI Express x1.0 or 2.0 card slot.
if you do, you can get a good vid card aftermarket for $100-200. Just check to see if it is a 1.0 or 2.0 card b4 u order
also, pack as much system ram as you can get under your hood. it is dirt cheap nowadays, and makes all the difference.
i would say snag that card, and start there. Also, stack up with RAM.
check your specs and make sure what you are getting is compatible. shouldn’t take too long.
$40 card should make a world of difference.
ok yeah thanks…imma save up for a 1GB of RAM mmeory and at least a 256MB video card..
