what is it?

Graphics cards take data from the CPU (central processing unit- it acts as the computers brain) and turn it into pictures. The images you see on your monitor are made of tiny dots called pixels. A screen displays over a million pixels, and the computer has to decide what to do with every one in order to create an image. To do this, it needs a translator something to take data from the CPU and turn it into a picture you can see.
