A810n video card upgrade

Which video card do you suggest that would be good for the Sims 2 on this machine? The game is not installing correctly and I am assuming it is the video card. Any help would be appreciated!

Make sure that your system is on hardware compatibilty list ( enough Ram, acceptible OS, etc.) I would suspect the video card as a problem farther down the list. It will likely function to some extent with any card but possibly require and upgraded card for adequate performance

The specs for your system's motherboard say it has an 8X AGP slot. Here's a page at Newegg.com (just as an example...I do lots of business with them, but you can search for other suppliers) that lists all the cards they sell with resolutions up to 2048X1536. Once you have a list of models and chipsets, you can compare and pick whichever best suits your needs.

This issue occurs if the video card installed in the Computer doesn't meet the video requirements to play the game. You can visit the Computer's manufacturer website to check for any updated driver for the video card installed in the Computer.

HI I AM HAVING SOME TROBLE I BOUGHT SIMS 3 AND CANT PLAY


Get a video card as was recommended by EA. You have a PCI-E slot (also known as PCI-X or PCI-Express). You should be able to find one in the $80 range at any Best Buy or Fry's that will work.

Will the ''Sims 3'' work on this computer...?


It should be OK, your system shipped with P4 3ghz processor, so thet should suffice, what you may need is a high end video card and at least 1 or 2 gb memory. I dont reccomend using the onboard video.

Hi,
         Ok best thing to try, which will quickly solve your problem would be to go here

Then Click where it says : "Find out if you can run
that game on your PC"

Look in the drop down list and select The Sims 2 Double Deluxe PC game. Then Click on the "Can You Run it" Button.

It wiil then Scan your System & Build a detailed profile of Hardware & Software installed, and will inform you of what software or hardware is/is not compatable with the game you want to play.

I have a Pentium 4 3ghz Processor, 1GB Ram, Direct X 9.0c, Win XP SP3 installed & after running a test to see if my Machine would handle The Sims 2 Double Deluxe, it passed on all areas except Video Card. & This is what it informed me :

Video Card
Minimum: A T&L-capable video card with at least 32 MB of video RAM. ATI Radeon series 8500 or better, NVIDIA GeForce series GeForce2 GTS and better

You Have: Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family (Intel(R) 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset)

 Video Card Features - Minimum attributes of your Video Card

You may need to update the driver for your video card. Also on the issue of speed, here is a tutorial on how to use MSCONFIG, a utility that comes with windows to manage your startup programs.
