Help Me Choose: Video Card

 
Much of what you will do with your Vostro™ system, including using the internet and making presentations, involves intense graphics. The quality of images you see is largely dependent on the combination of your graphics solution and your monitor. Your graphics solution transforms video data into the visual display you see on your monitor. It plugs into your computer's motherboard, and is responsible for decoding and processing the video signal.

Graphics solution types

Discrete graphics (midrange to high-end solution)
Discrete graphics utilize a graphics processing unit (GPU) that is separate (or discrete) from the system's processor and also use a separate graphics memory. Because this solution does not burden the CPU and system memory, overall system performance is likely to be significantly better with discrete graphics when running applications that use complex images.

Integrated or UMA graphics (basic solution)
Integrated graphics solutions are among the most common type of graphics solutions found. An integrated graphics solution shares resources with the system's processor (CPU) and memory to display information onto the screen. While integrated graphics are capable of processing some 3D images, the shared resources can sometimes prevent them from delivering an optimal experience.
The system you are configuring may or may not include all of the options listed here.
