For those of you who are not familiar with technical nerd language or slang “specs” is the short version for your specifications. Now maybe you have been the proud owner of a personal computer for some time now and you have been playing all your favorite games on that machine with great ease and performance. All that is because you probably ave a very good video card.
Let me for that respect give you some basic specifications that your graphics card has so that you can form an image about what is going on that little piece of metal that helps your games work so well.
The Clock Speed of you Graphics Processing Unit or GPU will determine the speed at which your processor can render pixels per cycle. The faster the clock speed the more pixels rendered and the greater your speed is when playing games.
Memory bandwidth represents the speed at which your GPU can communicate with the on board memory. The more the bandwidth the better thus your machine can process all the graphical issues with great ease.
On board memory represents the variable and most important feature that can be found on your graphics card. A decent card these days will have around 512 Mb of memory however the better models go way higher than that and the newer games rely on huge amounts of memory to render all the detailed textures included in the game.
Now based on the specs you have and based on the games you would like to play you have all the weapons you need to choose a good graphics card to get your gaming needs under control.
