I have a few questions about video cards/graphics cards/GPUs (I think they're all practically synonymous, correct me if I'm wrong.)
How do you tell which is your video card after taking apart your laptop? (I have a laptop by the name of "ASUS Notebook U80V.)
I hear about PCI and PCIe slots for GPUs, what difference is there? And are there other types? Are video cards specific to one slot?
P.S.: Ultimately, I want to replace my card as I've asked about in this topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/340985/do-i-need-a-graphics-card-upgrade/
By the way, I have pictures of my laptop with one of its covers off as well as the only part that I dared to take off (which I suspect may be the GPU). I didn't take off the cover over my keys for fear of damaging my laptop.
