Nope it doesn't matter what kind of ram you have in your graphics card as they are used for different things What does matter is what type of slots your computer has. Mine, for example, has slots only for PCI cards and I must buy PCI. You can find out what type of slots your computer has by calling TigerDirect. Start with what type of graphics card your computer can use.

A graphics card is a part within your computer that powers the graphics in games, the video monitors, rendering and generally displaying things on the screen. Some motherboards have something called "on board graphics" and that means that the graphics come with the motherboard.

The graphics card is the component used to display images to your monitor. It is used more than just for games. Without the graphics card, there is no output to your monitor. Back in the old days, we used to call these things "video cards", which made it more obvious as to what these things do.Now different graphics cards have different capabilities. Some graphics cards, as an example, cannot support games that uses DirectX8 and above. Some graphics cards support multiple monitors; others do not. Some graphics cards can do full-scene antialiasing; others do not. The capabilities of the different cards can vary; and how well they do it also varies.

If you have an external graphics card, it will be located in the agp slot on your motherboard. If you open the case on your computer, you should be able to see it. The agp slot is often at the top of and of a different colour to the PCI slots. Cards which are mounted on the motherboard are called onboard graphics cards and are a different matter. Consult your motherboard manual for layout and for where the onboard graphics card should be.

Yes, a graphics card is essential for any computer. Without a graphics card the monitor would not be usable, as it is the graphics card that turns data fed to it into data which can be displayed as pixels on a screen. Even if you think you do not have a graphics card, you are probably wrong, as computers are manufactured with graphics cards mounted on their motherboards.

Locate the connector where the CRT plugs in. If it plugs in to a separate card, that's the graphics card. If it plugs in directly to the motherboard then the graphics card is integral to the motherboard.
