An external modem is usually more expensive than a card modem, even though the external modem is usually slower. The external modem has the added expense of external casing and additional translation to serial, parallel, SCSI or USB formatting.

An internal modem consists of a card that is installed in the computer, it has no additional wires or hardware. An external modem is more expensive to produce because, in addition to the card, there is the plastic housing that contains it, indicator lights, and cables to connect it to your computer.

You need to be asking about your graphics card. A modem is used for a phone line connection, and therefore does nothing with pixel shading. You need to get a graphics card to do that.

Internet connectivity has been implemented with dozens of different types of hardware on a variety of computers. This can be done with a dial-up modem, a wireless card or Ethernet card (in conjunction with a cable modem and/or router), a USB connection to a cable or DSL modem, a 3G card, a satellite modem, a serial or parallel cable connection to another computer with internet access, etc...

A modem is a serial port interface to a telephone line, allowing you to create dialup connections to other modem equipped computers. Often, a modem card includes a serial port interface, a COM port. The term modem has also become applicable to other interfaces, such as DSL modems and cable modems, though that usage is tenuous in some cases. Modem stands for Modulator/Demodulator.

Many people never use modem. If you are not using it either, you do not need. And of course you do not need a modem to connect to wireless networks.
