Since our DAW’s are so audio oriented I’ve never had a separate video card in my PC. I’ve figured the onboard graphics can handle anything that Cubase, some plugins, and the occasional tutorial video can throw at it.
But is it advantageous to have a separate graphics card anyhow? Is some of my ram or other processing power going into graphics? What are the standard/best practices here?
I’m on an ASRock Z77 Pro4 if that helps ftp://126.96.36.199/manual/Z77%20Pro4.pdf
