How to Upgrade Your PC’s Graphics Card

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.

    Research Your Upgrade Options

    Before you purchase an upgraded GPU, you should first gather some information:

    1. Find your hardware capabilities:

  • Motherboard graphics interface type
  • Current GPU model (if any)
  • Power supply
  • 2. Physical space in your PC

    3. Find the best value upgrade within your price range
