Please supply make and model of the video card
What games you are going to play

If the card meets the minimum requirements for the games you should be ok. But I will check and make sure with the above information

That should make no difference really. What they are saying is it must have the ATI Radeon or Nvidia Geforce chipset. Your card is that but it's jsut manufactured by Gigbyte. Does the card also meet the memory requirements by the games?
In other words the game should say it need the card to have 256 megs of memory

I thought that....but I was getting confused.......and the card says Chipset is from ATI so I'm guessing it will work and yea it also meets that requirement it has 265 MB of memory so when it gets here how would I install it........I heard I have to delete all the drivers of the last video cards and how would I get a hold of the drivers for this card

The drivers for new card should be included with it. As far as drivers for the old, Once you install new card and bootup you will have to install new drivers and that will remove old drivers. If it doesn't we will do it manually
