If I were to remove a graphics card from a computer and install an older one to it, will it accept it and give lower and graphics and all that or will it act weird?
just want to test an older card

You should be more specific. How about posting the make/model of graphics card & computers? I assume you're asking about a PCIe card, so does this older computer have a PCIe x16 graphics slot? Up until about 10 years ago, AGP cards ruled the graphics world. And some of the older lower end computers had neither PCIe or AGP; they had standard PCI slots only. Do you know the differences?

You should also look into the power requirements for the card. Does it need a PCIe power plug? If it does, does the PSU in the older computer have such a plug available.

ALSO, if the current graphics card driver is not compatible with the 'old' card you would have to at least remove the current driver and install a compatible one. A lot of work if your system is already set up the way you like it. You would have to reverse this in order to reinstall your 'new' card.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

You may want to run something like DDU.exe (display driver uninstaller) in safe mode, reboot, then install the driver for the older card.

i've tried switching in and out about 4 cards, 2 weeks or so back, gave me some nasty problems.
