Default Video Card

I have an nVidia Intergrated 6100 graphics card and I got a free 5500 BFG nvidia graphics card, if I install the 5500 would i be downgradeing? or is the 5500 better than the 6100?

You should probably install the card. More pixel pipelines, I think. But the core clock is also considerably lower. The best way to find out is to try 'em both out , but if you don't like installing/uninstalling them, you should probably just leave it alone. But the gained/lost performance probably wouldn't even be enough to matter anyway.

I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.
