Hi there all. I have been coming across many technical support forums and what not stating that graphic chipsets cannot perform as well as a graphics card. However, it seems to me that the market today people are only looking for an affordable computer that can run Microsoft office and can surf the internet. Due to this, I think it makes it very hard to find a PC/Laptop that does not include a graphics chip built-into the motherboard. So I am wondering what others have been able to do to get around this.
In addition, I would upgrade my computer, but I am not a big fan of someone disabling the graphics chipset and installing a graphics card due to past problems I had, where some games or applications just did not discover the upgrade I made from an onboard graphics chipset to a graphics card. I am not sure if the repair guy did not know what he was doing, and maybe did not fully disable the chipset, or if that is how it was 15 years ago. All I do know is that some games or applications just reported that my graphics display was not supported, when it should of been, and I am just a bit weary that I would be going through the same problem again, especially if the repair man does not know what he is doing.
