    How to change graphics card and drivers?

    To keep it sweet and simple i want to change my Graphics and drivers to Nvidia.Sadly intel is not good enough...well not for the type of gaming i'm trying to do. my computer specs alone are considered "decent". Ya know not super beefy but not poor either. Just right i guess lol. Anyways i want to change. I'm tired of intel and i'm getting left in the dust with how ridiculous it is. Reinstalling windows 8 is not helping my case either > How can i go about getting this done?

    What exact pc do you have? Motherboard..

    It solely depends on your motherboard on which video card you should get..

    Because of type of connection and speed it will handle..

    In my opinion I would go nvidia over amd, but it's just solely based on my experience with nvidia over amd cards always having to change or have things fixed in games updates..

    People have many problems with video card incompatible issues so once you pick out a video card you will need to use google and read reviews of it with your specific motherboard and look for people having problems.. Usually you will see many posts of people complaining about problematic video cards and your motherboard.. So obviously stay away from those..

    Nothing wrong with the Intel GPU, as long as you are not doing photo editing or playing games.

    It really depends on what you plan on doing and how deep that your pockets are.
