If you are building a computer, you do not necessarily need a stand alone graphics card. In a lot of instances, users just don’t need the extra power that a dedicated video card can provide. However, if you are building a gaming computer, there will be no more critical component to your in-game experience than will be the video card you choose.

That’s why, in this comprehensive FAQ, I’ve compiled a list of common questions that people have about GPUs and video cards, whether those questions be about GPU technology, how to buy a graphics card, what features graphics cards come with, or how to install/upgrade your video card.
