You will need a better gxf card, preferably something better than AGP cards. But since thats what your pc has try getting a 7000 series card. ex 7300gs

    You can also try updating your DirectX software, search Microsoft's website or even www.directx.com

    for GTA 4 the minimum video requirements are a 7900 series card btw..

    Minimum configuration

    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8Ghz / AMD Athlon X2 64 2.4Ghz

    Memory: 1.5GB (Vista) / 1GB (XP)

    Video Card: 256MB NVIDIA 7900 / 256MB ATI X1900

    Configuration recommended

    Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4Ghz / AMD Phenom X3 2.1Ghz

    Memory: 2.5GB (Vista) / 2.5GB (XP)

    Video Card: 512MB NVIDIA 8600 / 512MB ATI 3870

    ok for San Andreas you should be fine, a 6200 AGP should run it with no problems. If you have installed updated drivers and the Nvidia systems tools as suggested above and updated DirectX and you still have problesm, try adjusting your video settings in the game properties to a lower level & lower resolution. Alos you can try Reinstalling the game.

    For AGP cards the 7x series is the end of the road pretty much.

Hi there.

Have you updated the drivers for your graphics card? You can get the latest updated drivers from the Nvidia website here:
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Just select your make of card and then download. They will then install and update your current drivers.

I would also suggest download the NVidia System Tools with ESA Support, as this also comes with an update drivers tab, and you can also tweak your NVidia GPU to run the way you want it run.
http://www.nvidia.com/object/nvidia_system_tools_6.03.html

Hope that solves the problem.

    It would help, updating to the latest drivers will iron out any kinks/problems and gives extra support for newer games. Also, that is why I suggested downloading NVidia System Tools, as this will allow you to tweak the settings, make the picture sharper, more fluent, things like that.



    Try it, and let me know what you think.

  • Timothy Farley Apr 20, 2009

    I run a Geforce 7300GS, which, believe it or not, is slighly better than the 7900. The higher numbers don't necessarily mean that they are better/newer, the same goes for ATI Radeon GPU's. That's why NVidia let you modify the general settings of their GPU's with their System Tools, so you can get the best gaming experience from the card that you have. Yes, I would suggest that you might want to consider upgrading your card, but you would need to look into what games you would run, as alot of the new big budget cards are only really for extreme gamers. My card is a couple of years old now, and yes, is classed as outdated by todays standards, but I have not come across a game yet that my card can't handle.

It sounds like one of your ram chips is having a problem and needs to be replaced. If not then your motherboard is having a problem accessing both slots and this indicates a bios issue. Try downloading a bios upgrade for your motherboard if replacing the chips doesn't help as this cannot create some serious issues if you do it wrong. I would suggest you get a single 512 or 1gb ram chip instead of 1 or 2 256 chips as the price difference is minimal. Hope this helps.

Connect your monitor card into your origional monitor port. Boot to BIOS and disable the VGA port. Save and exit. After re-start, shut down and install the new AGP.

Can this graphic card be installed in my system?


If your MB only supports a 2X AGP card, then the answer would be no, as the card is 8X.

Also, your system processor and bus speed will likely to be too slow for most applications that you would normally see a benefit from this card. eg: games.

As some have said, better to buy a new system.

If the 'very low cost' is low enough to experiment, you could try it, but I don't like your chances.

Hope this helps.
