For many who surf the internet, only need a minimal amount of RAM, use their computer for checking email, and only watch a few online videos, integrated video is fine.. If you need a better video experience, such as those that work with graphic arts, or play video games, then a dedicated video card is the way to go. In addition, a separate video card contains its own RAM which allows it and the other system applications to run quicker and smoother.
So....the question is whether you're happy with your current video experience.. If not, then purchase a video card.
Hope this helps.
What are the advantages of installing a good pci video card in an expansion slot, in place of the integrated video board on the mother board?
Will it improve overall image quality or is it more beneficial to gamers?
I have an Asus desktop running Windows 7 home premium and an Asus lcd monitor.
