1 GB of ram? Check the software for minimum PC system requirements.It will say how many MHz is necessary to play the game.It will also give you what video card (min),RAM(min),DirectX (7 or Higher?) this game requires MINIMUM to run.Quite often the game will run,but poorly.Your AMD 2200 runs at 1800 which isn't lightening fast,but sufficient.I think the addition of at least 1 more GB of RAM is what you need,a total of 3GB would really make the computer happy when playing games.

Run this program from Microsoft to test your current memory for errors.
My computer is much like yours,I have XP Media-The 8600 card,a dual core 2.8 processor and 3GB of RAM.This setup will run a online racing game without hick ups at 1152 x 864 resolution.When I only had 1GB of RAM it would stutter like it was constantly trying to load the program,so I added another Gig and it started playing allot better.It couldn't keep up with Halo online until I added another 1GB for a total of 3GB.I am using a 32x version of XP,going to a 64x setup would improve performance even more.
Sorry,I'm talking too much.Try the RAM after you test what you have,you'll be glad you did!

I have Geforce Fx5200 128mb pixel shadder 2.0 and i cant run crysis, call of duty 4 is there any way to run these games ?


Yes with a better graphics card. You need Shader 4.0 at least on that graphics card. (Plus a lot more Stream Processors)

The GeForce FX 5200 is an AGP style of graphics card, and uses 8X speed. (0.8 Volts)
It is a Budget graphics card, and does not have the graphics 'power' needed for the games you stated.
(If memory serves it has 16 Stream Processors)

There is no 'miracle' program, or tweaking of settings, that will allow you to run the above stated games at a decent capability. Even at low settings for the games.

I would suggest an ATI HD Radeon 3850 at least.
HOWEVER, other things come into play.

You need a 400 Watt power supply that has 30 Amps on the 12 volt power rail. The power supply must have a 2x4 power cable. (Example:

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#eps4plus4 )
OR, enough 4-pin Molex power cables that are unused to put in a 2x4 power cable adapter.

Your processor has have the processing power needed also, or you will have a 'bottleneck' of graphics information.

A graphics card has it's own processor. (GPU. Graphics Processing Unit)
It also has it's own Ram Memory. (Graphics ram memory)
However if the processor is too slow, the graphics information cannot be processed from the processor to the game program, and vice-versa, in a speedily fashion.

Graphics information, (Data), hangs up. Frames freeze, and frame rate slows down.

Post the computer name , model name. and model number, and we'll see if a better graphics card will help.
(Example: HP Pavilion D5200t)

NVidia Geforce FX 5500 Playing Videos and Games


Seems like your video card just is either a little broken, maybe it overheated a couple of times to much, or it simply isn't fast enough to display all these games.
If I were you and I'd want to play these games, I'd buy a new PC.
For US$500 you've got a PC that can easily run these games on high without any problems.
I'm afraid there's no other way to fix this problem, your PC is just too old.

I hope this helps,
Yannick.

I just wanna kno if my GTA4 is gonna work smooth in full grafics with this card..


Well without knowing the card, i can tell you this.
I have a 8800gt 512mb, 4gb's ram and a 3ghz c2d e6600 and i get an average 42fps using the in game benchmark. It depends really what resolution you want to play at. I play at 1440 x 900. You would need at least a nvidia 8600gts or Ati equivalant card to play the game. Also a core 2 duo is definately needed to play this game smoothly- better yet if you have a core 2 quad. If you are using a laptop then I could almost certainly guess that it wont work. If you have a pc using intel graphics then it wont work either.

What kind of games does my vga support?


ok, you can play any game that dosen't exceed your processor speed and memory capability. I recommend upgrading your ram to 2 gigs. this will insure optimal performance. remember, look on the bottom of every PC game you plan to buy and check the minimum requirement on the bottom or back side of the game box. as long as the requirements don't exceed your processor speed and memory, you are good to go. You can PLay WoW on this unit at this point but, be sure to keep the detail level at the medium setting until you get more memory.

Please rate and have a great day:)

Cost of game hardware in india


2GB RAM should be about $100, the same for installation. Your current graphics card meets the specs you provided. An upgraded video card will be about $200 for one that will work, $300 for one that will work well.

Unable to play the PC game Crysis


AlanChong20, update you're video casr software. The radeon 9200 last update is listed at this link.
http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/xp/radeon-prer300-xp.html
The date for the upgrade is Nov. 15, 2006 No more driver update are being made.
If you're game still gives you the same error try lowering the game graphics detail settings. If set to high, bring them down to medium. It very possible you're card does not have enough memory to play the game. The 9200 is a older card. It may be time to upgrade.
