You can easily check your video card specifications on Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7

  • On your desktop screen, on the bottom task bar, left mouse click at the Start button
  • Type dxdiag and RUN , and press the Enter, or click OK.
  • A  DirectX Diagnostic Tools box will appear on your screen, you will see many tabs on your screen
  • Click on the Display tab.
  • While looking under the Display tab, there will be a Device section labeled which will tell you all of your graphics/video card specifications, as well as which drivers are currently installed for that graphics/video card.

Check the specifications and make the decision whether you need to buy another video card or is it still Ok.

Dear Xcliffx,

Really take care of kids’ requirement. You have asked multiple questions so I going to tell you one by one.

Higher video card means having better result and larger RAM. It will affect your videos by providing good picture/video quality and streaming. But make sure if you want to buy that one, it should be compatible with the motherboard and Operating system and vendor will tell you about it.

Lastly to check specs, right click on “Desktop” click “Properties “go to “Setting” tab. Click “Advanced” then “Adapter”. Here you can see specs under “Adapter Information” heading. So when you going to buy new one “Memory Size” must be greater than this one.
