Default Re: Graphics Accelerator ?????

Basically a graphics accelerator , gpu graphics card whatever you call it processes the graphics you see on your screen , they come in to types ,
Integrated -Integrated graphics chips share the main computer resources like ram and the cpu , they are integrated into the motherboard
Dedicated - most serious gamers use dedicated graphics cards because they leave the cpu and ram free for other things , they are attached to a port inside the computer .
