  1. it doesn't take much graphical power to playback a video, as it only has to render predetermined images rather than generate new ones constantly like games and 3d rendering does. the quality shouldnt change unless higher resolutions lag the system due to screen resolution problems or throttling due to heat

    so is graphics card only for gaming or it has other uses in a pc?
  3. bad quality cell phone shoot video will look same no mater where you play it

    thou if we talking about 1080p video, older integrated card won't be able to play it.
    but that's has nothing to do with quality, simply the ability to play HD videos.

    Overall quality wise, no you will not see much difference using different video cards

    graphics cards are usually for

    1. Gaming
    2. Professional work(editing, encoding etc)
    3. Multiple screens


    If ones work is just for HTPC use, an AMD APU or an Intel chip with integrated graphics is usually fine enough.
