I have a question about VGA drivers.
I’m trying to build a new PC, but as usual my wallet is empty, so I have to do some compromises.
My idea to save some money is to get first a very cheap VGA card, and then upgrade it with a better one later when I’ll have enough money. But I’d like also to avoid a mess in operative system because of the drivers. I really hate to do fresh installations all the time, and because of my money shortage I’m forced to use an OEM license of operative system, so I cannot do fresh installations very often. And no, I can’t afford a retail license (here in Italy it is priced around the double of the OEM license)
If I understood correctly, the drivers are the same for all the VGA (they are called “unified” for this reason)
So if I get an nvidia card (and nvidia drivers), and then after some time I’ll install a newer card, another nvidia VGA of course, there is a possibility that everything will be screwed or can I simply install a more recent version of the drivers?
Is it better to get directly the definitive card or can I do safely this two-step thing?
It is important for me to know this, because I can save around â‚¬80 in this way (yeah, my wallet is so picky :()
