Your board has an AGP slot not the newer PCIe display adapter slot.

The best card is an XFX Nvidia 6200 or an EVGA Nvidia 6200 these are the brand names.

They support Direct X 9.1 but would have some trouble with some of the latest game titles coming out.

To replace the motherboard would also require you to get a new CPU, RAM and Power Supply to support the PCIe Display Adapter you would want. The total cost of this would run you near $400 should you decide to go mid range in quality.

Myn mother board is amd i will play games but some games would ask for graphic card but i hesitate to use it is there anyway to play games with out using graphic card


Some games will work fine with the on-board graphics card, but the newer and/or more powerful games require a more powerful graphics card. These will not run unless you install a good graphics card in your machine. Sorry.

You can buy a video card and use it on this board. You need to buy a video card with a PCI connection.

If you are planning on buying a new motherboard, I would not go and buy a video card. The newer boards use a PCI Express 2.0 X16 connection and you would be better off buying a newer card to accompany that new motherboard

CAN NOT PLAY GAMES


I would start by upgrading the video card, because it is most likely the problem. Also try lowering the quality settings within the games themselves to increase performance. RAM also plays a factor in games, these days 2GB of RAM and up is ideal for gaming.

I have a enbuild graphics card i cant play games . while installing it does not support.It shows error


Many of the onboard graphics solutions are not able to handle a majority of the popular games on the market today. Motherboard manufactures know this and so don't put too much thought into upgrading the onboard solutions, being that a great majority of avid gamers would by a graphics card anyway.

My first thought is to buy yourself a graphics card. You probably wont need anything overly special (although I am not sure of how much you may play games) but for decent beginner cards, they run you anywhere from $20-$80 these days. For a little more say ~$100, you can get yourself a decent card that can play most games on the market today. However, do take in mind what your motherboard can actually handle as far as slots go (PCI, AGP, PCI-E).

What type of games are you trying to play ?

If your trying to play games that require a better graphics card, then you will need to get a new card.

Onboard graphics cards, typically do not have the graphics acceleration needed to play more advanced games.

GRAPHICS CARD


That motherboard and videa card connect using the AGP standard so you are quite limited to what video cards you can get without upgrading the entire system. Also, since your system is that old getting a modern graphics card will not help much as the processor (CPU) will limit it greatly.

nVidia has not released an AGP card in a few generations but they did have some back with the 7600 AGP. ATI released an AGP version of it's last generation of cards with the HD3850.

I personally think you are wasting your money and should consider upgrading your entire system if you are planning an playing any games. I would suggest getting the cheapest AGP video card you can find say a GeForce 6200 or Radeon X1550. Don't spend more than $50 or $60.

Remember that it must be AGP to fit on your motherboard. Another thing to consider is that any AGP video card you buy for you current system will not work in any new computer.
