I have a video card question for you guys. I recently aquired a RADEON 9550 256 MB DDR 8x/4x graphic card from a friend, and I was wondering if I should replace it with my current one: NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200 128MB. I really don't have much experience with ATI cards, so this is the reason for my question. Thanks.

I personally prefer ATI over NVIDIA. Some people might say differently, and include their reasons, so don't install it out of excitement. Now, if you do replace the card, do you know how to properly do this, with all the drivers and all?

Correct. As long as you know how to properly do everything, you're fine. I just wanted to double-check becuase some people are mistaken and believe that they can just plug-in the card with old drivers. That usually causes issues lol
