Hello all..
I have a PC running the ff specs:

Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Processor: Intel® Core™ i3-2100 CPU @ 3.10GHz (4 CPUs), ~3.1GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM
DirectX Version: DirectX 11
Graphics Card: Intel® HD Graphics onboard

I have a spare 1 GB NVIDIA GeForce 210 Graphic card so I installed it so I can play games. I updated it with the latest driver version 296.10

Then I noticed that my desktop doesn't look as clear as I have before when all I had was the onboard Intel HD graphics. The text on the desktop icons look blurry. I tried adjusting the appearance > display > resolution settings to the native resolution for my acer monitor (1366 x 768). I also adjusted the 'ClearType text' settings. Still, my desktop looks a bit blurry.

Is this because the Intel HD graphics is better than the GeForce 210?

Many Thanks! :)

Hi -
You did not list exactly what Model the Intel Graphics card was, I assume the standard issue for your (XXX) model, so it is hard to compare them -
Listing the Make and Model of the computer would help us -

Please check your Device Manager and see what is listed under Display Adaptors
My XP Pro shows my NVIDA GeForce 8500 GT listed as the installed device, or post a Speccy Snapshot of your system -

This can often help us check if your card is installed and active -

Thank You -
