If i upgrade video cards, should I still use the old one?
I am planning on building a tier 2 pc, but I can't afford the $250 for a video card. I was planning on buying the radeon hd 7750 video card, and later upgrading to the recommended video card when I have the money. If i was to do that, would I want to run both video cards, just the better one, or would it make more sense to just wait and save up for the better video card?

You'll want to run a single card, as you can't run a Radeon and Geforce card at the same time to combine their performance.

In other words, you'll want to sell the other card when you upgrade.
