Video Cards Nvidia from 7 model to 9 GTX

Hello people at Fixya!
Sometime we buy one of those video cards, like Nvidia, but not really knows, for what uses we actually need it! well , let me tell you these, from those 7 to 9 gtx model, you don't really need more than those ones for almost all kind of games. you name it! well the tips are, for good gaming!
1) Compatibility OS . 64bits or 32bit ( I prefer 32bit) for some compatibilties!
2) RAM, yes, it is some hungry games, more RAM more space!
3) Drive space, You going to need it, and a good swapfile sometimes.!
4) Video Drivers, The heart of all games issues, try to use the one that came with your video card, if all goes fine, KEEP IT! but if not use the latest version .
sometimes we need to do a research, for drivers that don't hurt the performance, graphic card, or bad writen drivers. be carefull on these one.
some drivers, may harmfull your graphic card, or overheat! giving you errors, or dreaded BSODs, or "Display driver NVIDIA windows kernel mode driver stopped responding and successfully recovered!! things like that, indeed some are relative to these error or bad driver. (usually).
My advice: always do a good research for good drivers, PSUs, and cooling system! very important points in gaming!
well that's all for now! :) keep the good game!

i just got cod waw game but computer doesnt support vertex data am i wasting my time. I have acer L3600


Hello there,
COD WAW has a minimum system requirements of the following:
CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz
RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA)
HDD: 8 Gigabyte
GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT
One main reason why you cannot play the game, is that Intel GMA 3100 is not capable of rendering the vertex shaders that has to do with lighting.
  • In order to play the game, you need to buy at least greater than the PCIE video card mentioned. It's that simple.
  • For example buy an ATI HD 4670 512MB or Nvidia 9500GT 512MB consider the memory.
  • Click the link for PCIE Video card installation procedure. Installation


Hopefully you will enjoy COD WAW third person shooter game.
Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Which AGP card is Better??


It is a toss-up , six ppl love ati , six love nvidia. I personally am a gamer, i run 2 nvidia 8600's (256m each). This is a personal preference.
My advise to you is look at the system requirements of your games you have or want to buy and see what video card they are optimised for, buy that one , but go a little beyond the specifications needed for the game as you dont want to upgrade again soon.
also take note if your PC has a 2x , 4x , or 8x agp bus. this will determine how much of an 8x card you can use in your system. for example , if you have an 4x AGP slot on your computer and install a 8x card, the card will run at 4x.
other things to consider. clock speeds are diferent on the same card from different manufactures as they customize the software and some beef up the clock settings. so you could buy the same card from two different makers and they will operate differently as for as performance.
I have had a lot of luck with nvidias' albatross 6600 GT 128Meg agp 4x card. i replaced it with a newer ATI x1200 256meg agp 8x and it only ran about two thirds as fast as the nvidia card with twice the bandwitdh.
in conclusion, i switched back as the 6600gt was actually a pci-e card with an agp interface (first generation pci-e)
i am fond of nvidia for gaming , but also know you get what you pay for in video cards.
Hope this helps in the decisiond making.
Regards.
