Is an outboard graphics card better Tags: Graphics Cards Computer Graphics Last response: November 28, 2012 9:04 AM in Graphics & Displays Share keely111 November 27, 2012 9:01:16 PM I have a 64 Bit, Win 7 64 desktop wih a built in video card. I use the computer mostly just for word processing etc. A friend of mine gave me a Gigabyte GV-R4350C-5121 video card. Here are some specs off the computer courtesy of sysinfo: Intel G41 Express Chipset Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family I do use the computer to watch movies from my phone or You Tubes. Is there a benefit to instaling this card or am I just better off without it? Thanks!

Also, the card use very little to none power, so you don't have to worry about power supply.
