On Board graphics going bad, replace with dedicated card? Tags: Graphics Cards Computer Graphics Last response: August 1, 2011 4:04 PM in Graphics & Displays Share iafatel August 1, 2011 3:55:10 PM I believe my onboard graphics is going bad. Frequent artifacts are popping up when I just do everyday tasks. The computer is about 4 years old and I don't feel like going through an RMA process. Is it possible to simply buy a dedicated card and by-pass the onboard graphics all together?

This is my parent's computer, I'll probably drop in a cheap ati5450 in and make use of that pci-e slot that's gathering dust. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
