The ATI Radeon 3100 Graphics card is a video card device. Card devices such as the ATI Radeon 3100 device may also be called graphics cards or video accelerators. These cards are expansion cards used mainly to facilitate in the process of generating images for monitor displays. The ATI Radeon 3100 Graphics card is used to translate digital computer signals into a set of instructions that computer monitor displays can understand. A monitor display has the task of displaying images that are generated by a computer. However, a monitor cannot directly translate computer binary code signals into color images unless a video adapter converts these signals into a format that the monitor can use. Once the video card translates the signals coming from the computer, the monitor can now display the correct image. Video cards also help in the computer’s overall performance and reliability.
