I recommend u use ati fire graphics at ati store.or u can use nvidia geforce 9300xm.i dind't know how much it will cost because the new processor graphics are expensive. i have tried all that and its works on my computer but before u buy, check ur system requirements and graphics processor requirements because i know it eats lots of your memory and ur processor.

I just got cod waw game but computer doesnt support vertex data am i wasting my time. I have acer L3600


Hello there,
COD WAW has a minimum system requirements of the following:
CPU: AMD 64 3200+/Intel Pentium 4 3.0GHz
RAM: 512MB (XP) / 1GB (VISTA)
HDD: 8 Gigabyte
GPU: 256MB Nvidia 6600GT/ATI Radeon 1600XT
One main reason why you cannot play the game, is that Intel GMA 3100 is not capable of rendering the vertex shaders that has to do with lighting.
  • In order to play the game, you need to buy at least greater than the PCIE video card mentioned. It's that simple.
  • For example buy an ATI HD 4670 512MB or Nvidia 9500GT 512MB consider the memory.
  • Click the link for PCIE Video card installation procedure. Installation


Hopefully you will enjoy COD WAW third person shooter game.
Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

What video cards are compatable


This computer comes with a Nvidia FX5200 so this tells me that it can support any AGP8X Graphics Card.

Here is a list of compatible GeForce cards for this PC's.
GeForce 6 Series - (GeForce 6200, GeForce 6600GT, GeForce 6600 and GeForce 6600 LE)
GeForce FX Series - (GeForce FX 5950 Ultra, GeForce FX 5900 Ultra, GeForce FX 5900, GeForce FX 5900 XT, GeForce, GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, GeForce FX 5700, GeForce FX 5700LE, GeForce FX 5200 Ultra, GeForce FX 5200 and GeForce FX 5500)
GeForce 4 Series - (GeForce 4 Ti and GeForce 4 MX)GeForce 3 Series - (GeForce 3, GeForce 3 Ti 500 and GeForce 3 Ti 200)
GeForce 2 Series - (GeForce 2 Ultra, GeForce 2 Ti, GeForce 2 Pro, GeForce 2 GTS and GeForce 2 MX series)
GeForce 256 Series - (All)

Here is a list of compatible ATI/AMD cards for this PC's.
ATI Radeon X Series - (ATI Radeon X1050, ATI Radeon X1300, ATI Radeon X1550, ATI Radeon X1600 and ATI Radeon X1650)
ATI Radeon 9xxx Series - (ATI Radeon 9550)


You should already have a GeForce FX5200 so better than that is the 6600 and 6600GT.

Since you want to upgrade your video card to a much powerful one, you can check this out ATI Radeon HD 4670 HD4670 512MB DVI PCIe Video Card.

Doing the upgrade a power supply upgrade is also advisable since new video card like now requires a high power supply, upgrade the power supply to at least 500W and for a additional fan is already recommended to avoid any overheating problem.

Need graphic card upgrade for Dell Dimension 4500 w/ pixel shader


This is an older machine that has a 4x AGP port for graphics cards. The good news is that cards for this slot are cheap...usually in the 30-50 dollar range. The downside is that you wont get the greatest performance out of them. I would recommend going with a Geforce FX 5200.
