Hi sandesh8, did you know you can increase the memory size of the onboard AGP card above the 64MB? Page 26 in you're manual. If you install another AGP card into the opened AGP slot, please go to this site & only use the recomended AGP cards in the Asrock list. Click on this link: http://www.asrock.com/mb/vga.asp?Model=P4i45GV%20R5.0&s=478&c=VGA
This is one of very few video cards found on the list with 256MB of video memory.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Pixel and Shader 3.0 Support

Pixel Shader 3 (PS 3), is just a technique used by video cards to render images to your screen.
In order to get a video card to support PS 3 you need to install DirectX 9c (the 'c' is very important, version 9 is not good enough).
Unfortunately your card only supports DX9 not DX9c and will therefore only play games that support Pixel Shader 2 or below.

Your only option in order to play the games you want, is to upgrade your Video card to one that supports DX9c or higher.
Geforce 6 & 7 series cards all support DX9c.
One other thing, if you are looking to upgrade check and see if your card is AGP or PCIe. I have a feeling that they only made the FX5200 in AGP but check it to make sure.
AGP cards are almost obsolete now, but Nvidia & ATI do still make a few and they can be found on large online PC retail outlets or perhaps try and pick up a good one on Ebay.

Hope this helps

I dont want to buy new graphic card how i run resident evil 5 it says unsupported pixel shader 2.0


Try updating your video card drivers. Most manufactures have drivers listed in the support section of their websites. If this does not solve the problem, you will have to upgrade the video card.

Whenever I try to open DMC4 this message shows up "error6: unsupported pixel shader version 2.0"


Hello
Pixel shader error is usually beacase your video device or video card is not able to run the game.

You can try going to your video device manufacture website and downloading and installing the latest video drivers.

If this doesnt work, your going to need to get a new better video card Nvidia and Ati are two good cards for gaming,please make sure your motherboard will be able to support what ever video device you decide to buy.

GPU sheader 2


The ATI Radeon 9250 card only supports Pixel Shader version 1.1 or 1.4 and older. It will not support Pixel Shader version 2.0. You would need to upgrade your graphics card if your game or application requires Pixel Shader 2.0.

Resident evil 5 benchmark unsupported pixel shader version 2.0


The game needs Pixel Shader 3 support, which is found on GeForce 6 series and up, and Radeon X1k series and up,

Sorry but a video card upgrade is a must to play this game.
If you're trying to run it on a laptop then you are probably out of luck as they're not upgradable.

I need to upgrade the video card for my Gateway 7330GZ laptop


Hey,

looked over the spesifications of your laptop, the video card thats build into the laptop doesn't have pixel shader 2 support and it can't be replaced since its build into the motherboard.

noting you can do about it, other than buy a newer laptop with a better video card, almost any ati or nvidia card will do, if your going to buy one you can check in with me and I'll make sure its got what it needs to run the game or you can ask the sales people to check on it before you purchase it.

Thanks,
Ekse

ERROR: Un supported pixel shader version detected, 2.0


You get this error because your graphic-card (architecture) is too old to run the game. To run the game you need a graphic-card which supports at least pixel shader 3.0, whil your card "only" has 2.1.

In case you're sure your card supports pixel shader 3.0, you'll need to update the graphic driver and/or DirectX (component of Windows) to the latest version(s) and try again.

If you're not sure wether your card support pixel shaders 3.0, you can post the brand, name and type of your graphic card here and I'll reply. When the card doesn't support 3.0, there is no other solution than simply buying a newer card (or don't play the game).

Need video card


Hi there,

The EA website says the minimum requirements are:

  • Video: DirectX 9.0c compatible video card with 128 MB or more memory, Pixel Shader 3.0 support, and one of these chipsets is required:
    • ATI Radeon X1300 Pro or greater
    • NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT or greater
      • Note: NVIDIA 6800XT/LE, 7100GS, 7200GS/LE, 7300 GS/GT are not supported
    • Note: NVIDIA SLI and ATI Crossfire modes are NOT supported, and may have a negative effect on gameplay. In addition, ifyou have an NVIDIA SLI or ATI Crossfire setup, we recommend you do notuse the 'Force Split Frame Rendering' option. This option has beenshown to have a negative effect on performance.
Chances are your card doesn't support pixel shader 3.0. So either upgrade the card to the NVidia 6600 or you can use an emulator like this:
http://www.transgaming.com/products/swiftshader/
or
http://www.3dfxzone.it/dir/tools/3d_analyze/index.php

But for all the fuss of trying you'll still be better of getting one of the latest graphics cards compatible with pixel shader 3 or higher. Although, do bare in mind that you will need to find a graphics card compatible with your motherboard. This is why many people are now opting to use consoles for gaming to avoid all these 'unknown' requirements.
All the best in your endeavours.
