Question about Computers & Internet
I need to upgrade to a 128mb video card that supports pixel shader 2.0. I'm trying to run the video game SPORE. If I can upgrade which video cards are compatible?
motherboard: ASUSTEK p4g533la
chipset: intel i845gl

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.

did you install the drivers that came with the radeon card... if not your going to have to go to the manufaturers website and get it for the version of windows you have.

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
