Hi Errybody -
I am trying to decipher if I should keep my current graphics card or swap out one that my co-worker is offering me for $20. The trouble is twofold:
1.) I can't tell specifically which
model graphics card I have, nor the specific graphics card my co-worker has. All I have is the series that they belong to. Would a serial number or some other identifyer help me figure out exactly the readouts of the two cards?
2.) I have no idea what specifications are meaningful to compare, and the extent to which a swap would be an upgrade, lateral movement, or downgrade.
I don't really want to swap the cards out and do a 'seeing eye test' as I don't think my eye is trained enough.
I have a PCI Express 2.0 input, and the maximum bus is x16 if that's a significant number at all.Current Card
