A video card (also known as a video adapter, graphics card or graphics adapter) is the main component of displaying an asynchronous computer. Its task is to process the image information sent by the computer and convert it to a display unit as meaningable analogue signals. This unit can be CRT monitor, LCD monitor, LCD module, HDTV or projector. The graphics card and display can communicate with each other through different graphics standards. The video card may be embedded on the motherboard or an expansion card.
