New Games are released time to time and their demand for resources increases every time.

But one thing you can do is to get maximum performance out of your video card. This article will give you some advice on how you can tweak your card to get maximum performance out of it.

Tips to Improve Graphics Card Performance

Update Graphics Card Drivers – The first and the foremost step is to update your Graphics Card. Latest and updated drivers contains many bug fixes, improvements and performance enhancements that can be very helpful in playing newer games.
Sufficient Power to your Card – Make sure you have sufficient power supply for your card. If the card requires 400 watts of SMPS then you should install at least 500 watt or higher SMPS for your computer as other components will also draw power. If your power supply is under-powered then your graphics card will not perform to its maximum level.
