Windows 7: Adobe Photoshop

When I was playing around with Adobe Photoshop, at one point it said I needed to update my graphics card. Should I update it or leave it alone?

I certainly wouldn't upgrade it because of some popup message from Adobe.

I don't even have a graphics card and I've never seen that message when I use Photoshop.

Hi,
Which version of ps JJ ?
CC6 ? has a lot of new 3D feature which if you want to use those features then I'd say yes,
Is this the newly clean installed machine ?
You should already have the latest drivers installed.

Are you talking about Creative Cloud 6?

Okay yep 2014,

You can always ask Adobe directly to see what is the issue with your existing card which is almost 2gb

I used a mere GT640 with 1gb without issue with 3D rendering,
ps worked okay with onboard graphics just wouldn't do anything 3D.

Ram is not what I'm referring to your system spec's page shows graphic's card as 1909mb which is almost 2048 which is 2gb
Possibly redo your system spec's page again with the forum auto utility see if anything changes there.

ThrashZone is talking about VRAM (the amount of dedicated memory your card has assigned to it) as apposed to the DRAM you have installed in your system.
