    Hello,

    What are the games you are trying to play? Also do you have the latest drivers. In some cases newer software updates pixel and shader versions.

Pixel Shader 3 (PS 3), is just a technique used by video cards to render images to your screen.
In order to get a video card to support PS 3 you need to install DirectX 9c (the 'c' is very important, version 9 is not good enough).
Unfortunately your card only supports DX9 not DX9c and will therefore only play games that support Pixel Shader 2 or below.

Your only option in order to play the games you want, is to upgrade your Video card to one that supports DX9c or higher.
Geforce 6 & 7 series cards all support DX9c.
One other thing, if you are looking to upgrade check and see if your card is AGP or PCIe. I have a feeling that they only made the FX5200 in AGP but check it to make sure.
AGP cards are almost obsolete now, but Nvidia & ATI do still make a few and they can be found on large online PC retail outlets or perhaps try and pick up a good one on Ebay.

Hope this helps

The ATI Radeon 9250 card only supports Pixel Shader version 1.1 or 1.4 and older. It will not support Pixel Shader version 2.0. You would need to upgrade your graphics card if your game or application requires Pixel Shader 2.0.

Cannot play FIFA09


Uh oh. It looks like you're out of luck.

FIFA 09 PC Requirement (minimum):
Graphics: 6600 Nvidia graphics card or ATI equivalent with support for Pixel Shader 3
DirectX Version: DirectX 9.0c"

Nvidia 6600 came out at 2004 and it supports DirectX 9.0C (Shader 3 came with 9.0C)
ATI Radeon 9200 came out at 2003 and only support DirectX 8.1 (which support shader 1.2 - 1.4)

Nope, Radeon 9200 will not support Shader 3 (neither will it support 2.0).

Time for a new video card maybe?

I hope this answers your question.

Pixel shader


A pixel shader computes color and other attributes of each pixel. Pixel shaders range from always outputting the same color, to applying a lighting value, to doing bump mapping, shadows, specular highlights, translucency and other phenomena. A pixel shader alone cannot produce very complex effects, because it operates only on a single pixel, without knowledge of a scene's geometry or of neighboring pixels. A pixel shader is a computation kernel function. Pixel shaders can alter the depth of the pixel (for Z-buffering), or output more than one color if multiple render targets are active

HOW TO GET PIXEL SHADER3.0


Pixel Shader 3 is a hardware feature. You can only get Pixel Shader 3 by getting a new graphics card, as it cannot be 'installed' with software. Please don't use all caps, it doesn't make people want to help.

If the game requires the pixel shader and your card does not have it or support it then your only option is to upgrade to a supported card. Hope this helps.
