    Hi I have a MICRO-STAR INTERNATIONAL MS-6738 motherboard with onboard
    graphics. I am running windows xp pro with sp2 update. I have been given a
    PCI graphics card S3 I think it is. It is about 5 years old. Will a PCI
    graphics card out-perform a built in graphics/video card?

    Thanks Ron

    built in video shares the system's memory.
    video cards have their own memory + cooling system.

    you can put a shitty video card and get shitty performance.

    find a used 4xAGP vid card instead of a PCI.
