I have a Geforce 6200 Turbocache (i think that's what it called) 128meg ram card. I got a new 22 inch monitor that when the display was set on higher resolutions it would freeze the computer. I thought it was the vid. card overheating but it turns out that there were drivers for the monitor on the cd (that weren't on the menu ) So after installing the drivers for the monitor everything is peachy king. In the meantime I had ordered a new video card. Got the XFX 8800 OC 320meg (I think). Anyway, it's supposed to be a very decent card for the price I got it at. Enouph for me anyway. Question is: I don't game. I just watch movies on my monitor so I was wondering if I should keep the video card. Will it help anything? It has DVI connectors but so does the video card I have now. I've been told a 'good' video card does not speed up your computer. It will only show better speeds in games. So besides the added configurations (like being able to use it on my tv etc) does the DDR3 ram and all the other 'cool' things help any? Also, maybe someone could answer this question. -I've been told that with the new monitor drivers the top resolution for my monitor should be 1600 by 1050. Well in the display settings it shows it can go higher than that? Why is that? Could I use those display settings without hurting card/monitor?
