Complete list: The best graphics cards

The matching graphics card

Modern graphics cards transfer the image signal optionally via HDMI or DisplayPort. Some still have an outdated DVI output. Before the graphics card purchase, check if your monitor offers one of the connections. In the big monitor buyer consultation you will find tested screens of different sizes and resolutions. If you have not decided not for one, look in the graphics card comparison test: Here you can feel suitable imagery for small and large purse. The current top models are the RTX 3080 Ti of MSI and ZO TAC as well as the RTX 3090 from MSI.

Install Graphics Card: Preparation

Before starting a work surface, ensure enough room and good lighting. The following steps lead them lighter on a desk plate than narrowed and dark under the desk. First remove all cables on the computer, then open the lid on the prepared work area. Who wants to install a graphics card, must clarify if the place is enough. Above all, see as the owner of a finished PC, because there is more closely. An RTX 3080 Ti (like Total) is not only extremely expensive, with 31.8x13.2x6 centimeters, it does not fit into any computer. Make sure that your housing is marked as full or at least MID tower. The GeForce GTX 1660 Ti of Total is only about half as large (17.35x11,13x3.53 centimeters) and adds itself in almost every housing.

The right power supply

Important is also a look at the power supply: In many favorable desk PCs, it does not have enough power and the necessary connections for separate energy supply of the imagery. The power supply must provide sufficient power — PCs with strong image makers need a lot of electricity. Usually, on the carton of the graphics card is a recommendation of the manufacturer. For power supplies, not only the raw power, but also the range of power cables counts. One 6- and an 8-pin plug each are compulsory for many Locker graphics cards, stronger models like the RTX 3090 even demand multiple 8-pin plugs. Once the two questions are clarified space and power supply, it can start. At least almost: is a graphics card in the computer, if necessary, release the side mounting screw, then press the holding clip down and pull the printed circuit board carefully.

Install Graphics Card: Insert new model

If a separate graphics card is missing, you will usually find the associated elongated slot immediately below the processor. Pay attention to the lettering PCI Express x16 ( p edifier C component i interconnect) or look in the manual for the main board (motherboard). After gentle printing, the new graphics card sits firmly in the slot. Fix it by screw on the side. Powerful models like the comparative test requires quite a lot of power from the power supply. So do not forget to supply the image maker with energy via 6 and 8 pin plugs; Otherwise, the motherboard will beep.

Install graphics card: Install drivers

A note for anyone who switches from an old AMD graphics card to a new NVIDIA model or vice versa: For a clean installation, uninstall the previous driver from the PC. Reliable works with a free tool called Display Driver Uninstaller (CDU) — This manual describes gradually as you remove your graphics card driver. The reinstallation of the driver is similar to AMD and NVIDIA.

Both manufacturers offer an Express and a custom installation. The former is practical if it should go fast: Additional programs such as NVIDIA GeForce Experience or the AMD wizard for problem reports will start automatically on the hard disk. The user-determined approach depends on advanced, the knowledge of which software you need.
