If you’re using an older computer or a computer that came without a dedicated graphics card (GPU – Graphics processing unit), you may have considered getting a more powerful GPU. An upgraded GPU will let you:
- Play games at higher resolution, detail, and frame rate
- Play HD video without stutter
- Use two or more monitors (helpful if you can only use one with your current setup)
- Speed up photo and video editing
In this guide, I’ll show you the basics of finding out what your upgrade options are and how to install a new graphics card.
