Recently my video card began to mess up. So yesterday I went out and grabbed a new video card.

I built this computer about 4 1/2 years ago and I used a GeForce 7800 GT video card which was close to state-of-the-art at the time.

The old card did yeoman duty running two monitors 18 hours a day for four and a half years.

So I stuck in a new GeForce 9800 GT video card and was very surprised at the difference.

The text on screen is so much sharper and details show up much better in the graphics.

The old video card degraded a bit over time, but you don't notice it the decline is so gradual.
I put in a new monitor three months ago and naturally the picture seemed better but a new video card really made the picture pop.

So if your video card is more than three years old you might want to consider replacing it, it can make a world of difference.
