Sorry if this topic has been discussed before. I am planning to add a new PCI video card in desktop computer. Just wondering what are the advantages of installing a good PCI video card in an expansion slot? Does it improve overall image quality or is it more beneficial to gamers? BTW I have a desktop computer running Windows 7 home premium. Just got a new ASUS 24-Inch widescreen LCD monitor from buy.com through discount deal. I appreciate any assistance you experts can provide.

Thanks..

by upgrading your video care, you should bet better performance on the video on your computer, could even make it faster. I recommend an Nvidia or an ATI card. The better the card the better the performance. Which one to get depends on what you are looking to use the computer for. If used for gaming then make sure its rated for that and get one with plenty of memory on it.

depends on what you want to do with the pc.

if its for gaming then you need to look at the games you play and then look at the res your monitor does.

you also need to take into account if the games you play are dx11 and also the fact that future games will be dx11.

then you can decide what card you will need, most will fall into the 470, 480 gtx cards in nvidia and 5850, 5870 cards in ati.

if your res is 1900 x 1200 and you want to play most games at highest settings with good aa and af then go with a 480 gtx, if the res is lower then go with a 470 gtx.

if the graphic card is not for gaming and its just for regular use then the mentioned cards are too much and you need to look at weaker and cheaper cards, cause the ones mentioned are for intense gaming.
