How hard would it be for me to put a better videocard in my computer?

it's pretty easy, there's a typical way to do it,

1. uninstall your current vid card drivers
2. turn off pc
3. remove old vid card
4. install new vid card, making sure it's seated in the slot properly
5. turn on pc. The graphics and colors may look tacky but that'll change. If you have Win XP, or ME, the PC should prompt you that there's a new piece of hardware and ask you to install the drivers. Follow the driver install wizard and you should be good.

check the manual before installation, which i know for most is not an easy thing to do, there may be special instructions for your new vid card.

Dear rotty,

I agree with efizzer but are you sure on what new card you need?

What are your system specs?

What do you want to your video card to do?

Are you thinking about games?

Let us know,

jundk :thumbsup:
