I call it a video graphics card. I guess it's stuck in my head that way from the old VGA (Video Graphics Array) connection slots on old cards back in the day.

I use them both, but I guess I say video card more than the other. I also just say/type GPU a lot.

i use graphics card, feels a bit more universal in its descriptive purpose vs video card.

If you were to ask a newbie what either one is, which would they have a better understanding of its purpose?

I'm pretty sure I usually say graphics card, but it's possible I may "slip up" sometimes and use video card. Graphics card sounds right to me, but it's not something I really pay much attention to when I'm speaking.
