SOURCE: Which graphics cards are compatible

You can not use a PCI-E card. This mobo has one AGP slot and TWo PCI(not PCI-E) slots. I am assuming you have a Dell Optiplex GX260? It has the D845 series board. Goto Newegg.com and search for: AGP. They have a nice x1650pro agp card for cheap. I have the same board in one of my PC's

You will have to install a separate video card, there is no way to increase the memory of your onboard video.

SOURCE: need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader

Hi,

The recommended card for that game is a ATI Radeon 9800 or nVidia Geforce FX 5600.

If you are wanting to play some high end games then i would recommend ATI Radeon Sapphire 9500 pro.


All mentioned cards should cost less than $100.




Regards.

Graphics Card
Minimum Requirement
VRAM (256 MB)
DirectX 9.0c / Shader 3.0
NVIDIA GeForce 6800 series
ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro

Your Dell has an Intel GMA 3000 onboard with up to 256 MB shared memory and isn't listed so probably isn't supported.

~To download the manufacturers and therefore correct drivers or specific software;

Always get your drivers from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop.

If you were to log on to the intel web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.

Need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader


This is an older machine that has a 4x AGP port for graphics cards. The good news is that cards for this slot are cheap...usually in the 30-50 dollar range. The downside is that you wont get the greatest performance out of them. I would recommend going with a Geforce FX 5200.

After loading pet vet 2, window appears..pixel shader unavailable...what do I need?


PIxel shader unavailable would point to your video adapter being too old for this game. You would need to buy a newer videocard if your pc has a free slot.

What to do to play simms 3 on a T2792 emachine. says i need a pixel shader2.0 ?


Hmm... It looks like you may have an older graphics card. Pixel Shader 2.0 is the shader version on a graphics card. You may need to upgrade your video card. I'm sorry, but there is really no way to get around the Pixel Shader restriction other than having a graphics card that HAS Pixel Shader 2.0 or above. You may want to visit newegg.com or tigerdirect.com to see how much this upgrade will cost. Ebay could also have some deals for you. To find out what card you CURRENTLY have, use the "RUN" tool in Windows, and type in "dxdiag". The display tab within dxdiag will show you what card you currently have. I hope this helps.

Shader 3 compatibility?


Hey,

If you look at this page you can see
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pixel_shader#Hardware_Compatability

PS version (pixel shader version supported / compatible)
so that would be for shader 3 requirement

Ati Radeon x1300 to x1950 cards support it Also!
Nvidia Geforce 6 and newer.

The Radeon hd 3xxx and newer support version 4 (everything 1 2 3 4)

well you can see on the list.

If you want a cheap card with just shader 3 support

get ati radeon x1900 or better
or Nvidia 8 series, nvidia 8600 GT for example.

Do you need a place to buy them from?

in the USA - http://www.newegg.com/Store/Category.aspx?Category=38&name=Video-Cards-Video-Devices

for example, this one is cheap
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814140104

But it requires a PCI-E slot on the computer. Looking at your computer you have a agp slot, I think its time to buy a new computer for the newer games.

Pixel Shader is a hardware capability. It must be supported by the graphics card. Sounds like your graphics card will not work with the game you purchased. To answer your question directly, you will need to install a graphics card that supports Pixel Shaders to be able to run games which need it.
The following cards support Shader Model 1.x: - ATI Radeon 85xx Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9000 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 9100 Series (1.4) - ATI Radeon 92xx Series (1.4) - NVIDIA GeForce3 Ti (1.1) - NVIDIA GeForce4 Ti (1.3)

I am trying to find a way to download "pixel shader support." still havn't found a way to do this


Pixel shader is not something u download, it is a feature that comes built in with a graphics card or chipset. The only way to get it is to buy a card that has a version of pixel shader

Video Card


You need to have a card with Pixel Shader 2.0 and above, like the nvidia geforce 6600 GT, 6600 or 6600 le. However, those cards are PCI Express cards. If you have a AGP slot, look for any AGP card with Pixel Shader 2.0 and above. Cheers
