Hello there. First you would start with what you are able to use. do you havethe ability to use pci-e (express) if so then does it go to pci-x16? if not then go with the agp options. not used much anymore but they work if your motherboard can support it. the last ditch effort is to go with a simple pci graphics card. Then you would consider your price range. there are some very good deals on www.pricewatch.com, and www.newegg.com . if you don't want to find yourself back here in a year then I would suggest a card that has at least 512Mb ram. nvidia, and ati are the chip makers you want to look for, always check out the reviews for the products and sellers as well.

It would be better to install a graphic card.
As most of the games recommended requirement is that you have installed a graphic card in your PC.
Also try some troubleshooting steps given here;
Stop un-necessary background running services
Update all drivers
Scan PC with an updated Anti-Virus
Also use game optimization softwares like PCFresher that will turn your computer to gaming mode.

Was wondering if it can be replaced with a better graphics card


This depends, mspolar1.

Depends on;

1) If it's a Desktop computer, or a Laptop computer.

Desktop computers may, or may not, come with Integrated Graphics.
For those desktop computers that do Not, a graphics adapter card is used.

(Graphics adapter card is also referred to as a Graphics Card, or Video Card)

Desktop computers that Do come with Integrated Graphics, will also have a graphics expansion slot to install a graphics card in.

2) Laptops generally just have Integrated Graphics, BUT there are some models that Do have a Graphics Card, and there is the possibility of upgrading to a better one.

The above relates directly to Toshiba desktop computers, and laptops, as well as a reference to all desktop, and laptop computers.

To explain Integrated Graphics:

Another name for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chip is soldered directly to the motherboard.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A graphics chip has a GPU on it,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

Integrated Graphics borrows some of the system's resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program that is being ran.
Two Operating System examples are Windows XP, and Windows 7. An example of a program that may be borrowing system resources heavily, is a game.

If an intense game is being played, the system resources cannot keep up with the demand for graphics, when Integrated Graphics is installed.
(Slow frame rates, or freezing. Poor graphics. Even with low settings)

A dedicated graphics card borrows very little of the system resources, or none at all.
A graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU and graphics ram memory)

In direct reference to Toshiba laptop's, post the laptop Model Number to see if the graphics can be upgraded.
There are some Toshiba laptops where this is possible, and some that are not.
(Post in a Comment)

The one's that use Integrated Graphics, and no dedicated graphics card, are the ones that cannot be upgraded.

Graphics card upgrade on Acer Extensa 5230E-901G16Mn laptop


Unfortunately, laptops are generally locked down in terms of graphics cards. The GPU is integrated into the laptop mainboard due to space constraints.

Your only option if tied down to a laptop for any reason would be to purchase a more recent laptop with a specific graphics card in it.

Any discrete (NVIDIA or ATI) graphics card that was manufactured after 2008 should be sufficient to run most games.

If you're looking to play games on more intense graphic settings, your best bet would be to look for laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M/240M or better, or the ATI Mobility Radeon 4600/5400 or better. Either brand with at least 512 MB of video RAM will work well.

My "Assassins creed" doesn't work after half hours playing...


Firstof ll you should check wethr you have the latest update (1.02) installed for the game. If so, try reinstalling the game. If that doesn't work either, since Assassins creed is quite a GPU intensive game, it could be your graphics card that overheats. Download this program: GPU caps viewer v1.7 from: http://www.ozone3d.net/gpu_caps_viewer/ Install it, start playing, after about 20 minues, check your GPU temperaur. If it is more than 70 degrees, u will need better cooling for your graphics card. If you need any help finding that, please post it here. I hope this helps, Yannick

I have intel-945GM express chipset, and i need to play a game that needs shader model 3 please advice


firstly you need to have a pci express graphics card inorder to play new games. Intel chipsets are NOT for playing games!! You should get at least a Nvidia 8600gts or ati 3650 or similar to game properly- presuming that you have a pci express slot. Be warned that if you get a new graphics card dont go by the series eg, 8 series or 9 series- a 8600gts is better than a 9400gt. A nice graphics card for the money is the nvidia 9600gt. Good luck upgrading

Blue screen while playing games


Try a new driver for that card. That gpu has problems with sims 2 games. More ram could be needed, a better cpu and that graphics card isnt great for playing newer games a Nvidia geforce 9600gt is much better.

Can't play games on intel


If you have a laptop, sadly this cannot be helped. You simply have a discreet graphics card that is not meant for gaming.

If you have a desktop PC, then you can upgrade the graphics. Look at which slot you have (AGP, PCI, or PCI-E) and choose a graphic card accordingly. If it's nVidia, take a card with a number above 8000. If it's Ati, a number above 2000.

Hi...i just installed game left4death....but when i start the game screen is blank....i have tone...just dont have a screen...evrethyng is black...help me... graphic card is asus a9250 I have a same...


Hello,

Your card is a low end, 128mb, AGP card, that doesnt support DX9 or higher. I assume L4D runs DX9c at least, though I dont play it. I would suggest investing in a better graphics card. Many are out there at reasonable prices that will run this game. As SubliMation said, check the box for graphics card minimum specs.
