Default Re: What video card should I use?

The Radeon will be faster, since it's not onboard. An integrated graphics chip shares RAM with the system, and the card has it's own RAM. So basically, using the card will free up some RAM, allowing the computer to run faster.

Either way though, you can't play current games with either of those chips unless you like your resolution to be at 800 by 600 with all the lowest settings. If you're a serious gamer, you're going to need a newer graphics card. I'd recommend the GeForce 7600GT. The below link is the XXX edition, which is slightly overclocked to run faster, so the fan goes faster and is consequently noiser to to the excess heat.
