R9550-m64CDT is a video graphics accelerator card produced by ATI technologies. It uses VGA (Video Graphics Array); the last standard for graphics which was brought to the market by IBM and which most manufacturers of PC clones conform to today. It has since then become part of the conventional standards that are in use in most personal computers. When the VGA standard is in text mode, it can function at a maximum resolution of 720 x 400. On the other hand when the VGA system is in graphics mode, the VGA resolution is 640 x 480 for 16 colors; and 320 x 200 for 256 colors. VGA utilizes analog signals therefore monitors which have been created for an older standard may find that they cannot use VGA. However, almost all personal computers support VGA at the moment, and they may also be able to support other superior standards.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
