You're going to have to be a lot more specific.
What video card are you trying to install?
What trouble are you having with it? Are you having trouble getting the card to fit in your computer? Are you having trouble making sure it's getting enough power so that it doesn't burn out by running on an insufficient power supply? Are you having difficulty getting drivers for Windows 10? What card is it replacing?
Cannot figure out how to install this nvidia graphics card to run GPU
Well, it's no great loss because AE can't use GPU acceleration. No CUDA. Sorry.
Why do I feel like i just the wind knocked out of me?

That's not entirely true (but it is mostly true).
Lumetri, Sharpen, and the new and improved Gaussian Blur can all be accelerated with CUDA on Windows.
And the obsolete ray-traced renderer does use CUDA to accelerate the creation of 3d geometry with it (but I wouldn't worry about that feature that much).
So what the heck do I need to do to get these graphics right ? So your telling me installing a drive is not going to work ??
I am having trouble installing on my computer. I have the nvidia downloaded, but everytime I try to run it , it tells me graphics not supported or something like that.

Unfortunately your posts are not making much sense. Maybe it's a translation issue?
I am having trouble installing on my computer.
Installing what exactly?
I have the nvidia downloaded
You cannot download an "nvidia". How about telling us the exact name of the file you downloaded.
it tells me graphics not supported or something like that.
You are going to have to make the effort required to tell us EXACTLY what you are trying to run & EXACTLY
what your computer is telling you. Trouble shooting software/hardware problems requires specifics.
Telling us "something like" what it said will not get you very far.
Unfortunately, unless you can give us specifics like what hardware you're trying to install, what files you've downloaded, what error message you're getting and other pertinent information then you're stuck.
It seems like your biggest problem might be a communication breakdown.
Or, that on a very, very fundamental level you have absolutely no idea what you're doing.
Okay when opening up After Effects I get the message saying I can only use the CPU and not GPU and then I need to download and install a nvidia graphic card. I have downloaded my nividia Geforce then when I try to run it thats when I run into problems I hope this is specific enough... if not will work on how to explain more thoroughly.
You cannot download a video card. A video card is a physical object that plugs into your motherboard.
And you've already been asked very specific question and prompted to provide specific file names...ect..
I do not know how else to word my questions so that you understand them.
I suggest you just ignore the the warning from after effects and continue to use it as is.
Or maybe tell us what your native language is, maybe there's someone around who speaks it & they'll have
better luck communicating with you.
And, if English IS your native language, then i suggest finding a new hobby. Maybe playing the bongos or finger painting
First of all no need to get chippy buddy... 2nd I do know that a graphics card is physically installed and not downloaded I was just trying to do what AE told me to do. If your going to be a ***** you don't have to help me.
1st I open up AE i get the message that to Ray Trace it requires an approved NVIDIA graphics card and CUDA 5.0 or later tells me to go to www.adobe.com/go/aeraytracedgpu
Next: go to site gives me an option for Windows to install the latest WHQL-certified driver for my GPU ( I click on this)
takes me to
Prod Type: GeForce
Product Series: GeForce Series 10
Product: NVIDIA TITAN X ( Pascal)
Operating System: Windows 10 64 bit
Lang: English (US)
I click to download it then I download it and then it is stuck.
And you dont have to insult me man I would appreciate it !!!
Wow....English IS your native language. That's stunning. OK, "buddy". It doesn't matter. Ignore the warning message from after effects. When it pops up just click "OK" and continue doing whatever it is you do.
Titan x is not (yet) supported for GPU performance in Ae. look here: After Effects System Requirements for Mac OS and Windows.
this means that if your preferences->display->gpu information in the meantime should be set to CPU not GPU
if you are still getting this message please share it via screeshot.
I think this guy is a troll. I looked at his other posts and they're all similar. People ask him to provide specific info or screenshots and he never does.

Well... these are severe accusations. I am looking at his content and cannot see any other post with this subject matter. actually looking at his content, D.U.I. has been contributing feedback on some posts so my guess he is just a regular Joe and there has been some misunderstanding specifically here.
Kindness and Patience can go a long way, and we all could use some more of that here in the forums. especially some of the veterans. not all users are technical savvy and we all make mistakes and not pay attention to details. I for example wrote a post asking him to specify his card, with actual screen shots and everything. only after I sent my post I realized he already did... I then edited my post and changed the content. I edit my posts sometimes 5 times or more because I only notice mistakes after the fact (or just too eager to answer) and also English is not my native language and there are grammar mistakes. (* I edited this post more than 5 times already!)
I have an idea, let's spare the novice users and save the energy dedicated to bashing and nit picking to where it belongs - making condescending forum know-all veterans acknowledge their misinformation and mistakes when they rarely make one
OK, First of all, D.U.I, my apologies for losing my patience and for suggested you might be a troll.
And Roei I hear what you're saying but I'm not sure patience goes a long way with everyone. It wasn't until I lost my patience with DUI, for not saying what GPU he was using after being asked at least three times by two different people , that he finally answered. I think in this case my rudeness got DUI to give at least that info. Just look at the difference between his posts in this thread before I snapped, and the one after I snapped. Asking nicely seemed not to register with him at all, while snapping at him garnered a very coherent and useful reply.
I understand completely and I hear you and I sympathize. some users sometimes miss important information because lack of concentration or some other reason. you were only trying to help and I am sure it is appreciated. we some time invest a lot of time and energy and some users don't even bother to come back or say thank you or give any feedback if anything helped. some users actually think that some veteran users here work for Adobe, not realizing here that this is user to user support forum and everybody here, including the Adobe staff that drops in from time to time, is helping out of his own reasons but always voluntarily.
Here's a related story: I remember one of my first experiences here in the forums. I asked a photoshop question and a user posted a full page response just teaching me how to post a questions with cynical remarks, bold and underline and italics to convey his message clearly. if he had bothered to read my post, he would know that these technical specs had nothing to do with my "problem" though I should have provided them and Now I know why I need to provide them. needless to say I was very annoyed by this behavior and felt that this user clearly did not want to "help" at all, now I know he did want to help, but in his own way.
some users take offense more than we can imagine. I know that because I have noticed some novice users responses to our forum cynics. though the blunt cynics could be right in their remarks, they could have softened their message. I would imagine we want a supportive and positive community here and not a bunch of know-all cynics answering to a confused crowd of newbies. when a novice user asks a question, he is already troubled and confused and all we can do I believe is explain nicely and with patience. he could eventually get it or not but this is not really our problem we are only here to help not solve all his problems completely. this is only my opinion of course.
You're right. My temperament is not always "ready for prime time". Thanks for the check
I had the same problem with AE not seeing my GPU and the CPU method was sooooo slow. But I found a video from this guy, on YouTube and I was up and running in minutes.
You don't have to do that hack anymore. AE has a little tick box to use "unsupported" cards. There is no need to go into the approved cards text file.
Also, the ray-traced renderer that this trick is referencing is considered obsolete, so unless you're using that, this whole discussion is irrelevant.
