Need help with Nvidia or Amd video card support
1 1

Question

I have a dell optiplex 780 and i currently have a ati radeon hd 7500 and an nvidia quadro fx 1700, ive tried several driver options to get a better refresh rate for either card with no avail. Can someone help me find a driver that works for the most support for either. the nvidia no longer displays output when the OS loads. the radeon works but without full accelleration.
