Graphics Card Yes Or No


joca

Question

thought I would throw this one into the ring. I have just completed my 1st video since upgrading my pc and it went fairly well (better than before anyway) I gained a lot of knowledge from the guys on here prior to upgrading and it helped a lot. However I still encountered a few crashes (as previous) my kit is listed below. it should be adequate but I was wondereing if the addition of a graphics card would improve things even further I currently use an onboard one. Any advice on what to avoid would be useful I don't intend spending a fortune on one and I am not into gaming. Should I go for ATI or what???

 

Sorry about the topic title please ignore the Fir must have itchy fingers

As a rule you're generally better off using a graphics card instead of the onboard video.

 

If I looked at the right board then it shows an Integrated ATI Radeon™ HD 4250 GPU with 1Gb maximum shared memory.

 

Using a card will have it's own memory and not have to share.

Also by having a card you take the processing load off of your CPU and let the cards GPU do the work.

 

You can get a card that's better than the 4250 for not a lot of money.

 

P.S.-I fixed the Fir...:)

Hi joca, you might need to update your signature regarding on your dedicated Video Card. Just a thought.

As it is, the entry tells us nothing about your video card except that it has 1GB.
