After poking around here for a while, it's clear to me that one could spend a LOT of time learning the ins and outs of video processing and all the different types of video cards. I have to be honest, I'm not really interested in becoming an expert at video cards, so maybe someone who really enjoys that sort of thing can help me with a basic question.
I experience lock-ups and slow-downs periodically, and it was suggested to me that I might consider a video card upgrade. I am currently just using the video capability built into the motherboard of my Dell Optiplex desktop. Is there a meaningful upgrade from this in the range of a couple hundred bucks, or do I need to spend more before seeing any actual improvement?
Any product examples would be appreciated. I wish I had more to spend...
