I currently have an AMD Radeon HD8670D graphic card installed and the latest update for it was 11-2015. This is clearly causing lots of problems with Photoshop and other programs.

How do I know which graphic card to purchase?  I want the best one for Photoshop so I don't have anymore issues.

Thanks in advance!

I did this yesterday. Go to the AMD website, go through the checklists until you get to your card, click on it, download the AMD installer, it will automatically check your card for updates and download and install it. Bingo! You are back in business. And, yes, updating the driver did improve how some Photoshop functions work.
And, it's free!

Thanks, I need to rephrase my question.  I did that a month ago, turns out my graphic cards last updated version was 11-2015 which I have.  They no longer make updates for it so I have to buy one.  I am just wondering how I know what kind to get for my pc.
