Graphics cards are important, these make you actually see the game, i only know one game that works without a graphics card, and that one is made for blind people

if the box of the game says you need certain graphics cards, buy the card, or don't buy the game (if you are in doubt download the game to check if it works, as far as i know it's not illegal if you buy it after that)

Upgrading graphics quality on my pc.


There is a large range of graphics card on the market in both performance and prices to match.
The graphic card that suits your requirements depands upon what you want in terms of performance and the application that requires a particular level of graphic capability.
Check the software documentation or games program for the graphic card that is required to run with their program. Generally games programs that require photo realistic rendering require high end graphics cards.
You may select a graphic card that is a bit above your current requirements to cover for future requirements.
I suggest you Google search the Internet or go to your computer shop to see what is available that meets your requirements. You can spend a lot of money on a very high end graphics card when a lessor graphics card would still suit your requirements and not burn a hole in your pocket.

Tricks on Building a Mid-Stream Gaming PC


With the <b>advancement </b>of<b> technology</b> in the world of today's <b>computers</b> <b>games</b> became more popular as a way of fun time and the past, not only teenagers but also to those who are stressed their work and life and I just wanted to sit down and release tension. However, because of this advanced technology, games, more and more these days are power hungry and most people think of playing your favorite computer game, they need a computer system superior range. In addition, to purchase a high-level computer system will cost a lot - a lot of money.<br /> <br /> But if you are a player who is on a tight budget but still wants to play <b>modern PC games</b>, you do not need expensive computer just to enjoy the game. Construction in mid-stream for the game system will pay for about half of the high-end system, but you can still enjoy the pleasures of modern features and games can offer. Here are some important tips pc game when building in<b> mid-stream</b><br /> <br /> Most people would think that the most important part of a PC for gaming is the processor or the graphics card, but when a gamer considers building a gaming rig, one should invest on his Power Supply Unit (PSU). This piece of device will supply all the power a computer needs to operate. If you will buy generic PSUs, most of them are not that reliable and their reported wattage are inaccurate leading to inadequate power supplied to the computer parts. Some also do not posses power surge protection, which is very important. When inadequate power is supplied to all other parts of the computer, it may not perform the way it should be and may lead to deterioration of the parts. Weak PSUs are also responsible for those sudden shutdowns when you are on the heat of battle. <br /> <br /> This is because when the game displays many sprites, graphics textures, the computer needs extra power in order to satisfy the game's needs, and when the PSU cannot provide such power, the computer shuts down, which could really **** the gamer. To avoid these circumstances and bring out the full potential of your rig, invest on good PSUs. HEC and Gigabyte are very good brands of computer PSU.<br /> <br /> Another point to consider is the processor. Many people still question that should be used for players to dual core (2 CPU), or quad-core (4 CPU). For many people, the Quad core is the best game because it contains 4 CPUs at the same time together. In fact, most modern games can not use more than 2 processors, so it's quad-core, 2 processor is in standby mode. So if you're on a tight budget, dual-core processor, a timing clock large (&gt; 1.8 GHz) is more than sufficient to meet the needs of the game.<br /> <br /> <b>RAM</b> (random access memory) is also important in games. This is where the computer loads all the files needed to run the game more RAM capacity, the smoother the game runs. For a platform game, at least 2 GB of RAM is sufficient to run most modern games. More than 2 GB of RAM dedicated to the game can be excessive and do not run background applications of many, you're just losing the extra memory.<br /> <br /> <b>Graphics card</b>. This unit handles all the graphical and better graphics, better quality of graphics in the game gives. But the high-end graphics cards are very expensive. So try to aim for mid-stream cards, which are much cheaper, but still can not deal with images of game options. Examples of excellent mid-stream cards ATI HD 4770, ATI HD 4850, <b>Nvidia Geforce GTX 260</b>, <b>Nvidia GeForce GTX 270</b><br /> <br /> Video graphics memory. Most people misinterpret this information. Most people think that the more video memory, the card is better. Well, that's wrong. A graphics card with at least 512 MB or 1 GB of video memory is more than enough to run modern games. You only need a high video memory if you intend to play the game on very high resolution 1920 x 1200. In search of a good graphics card to determine the card with the best capacity for representation and processing power instead of video memory.<br /> <br /> Last but not least, the operating system (OS). The operating system usually depends on the player, the program that you feel comfortable. But most of today's games will be released on modern operating system and no more operational support and play it safe, buy and install the latest operating system. Microsoft Windows 7 is the recommended operating system for today's game because of its compatibility and stability.<br /> These are the particulars of your mind, you can build your own system of game players in mid-stream on a tight budget. Enjoy playing!<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />

What vga card works with msi p45 motherboard


If your motherboard has an AGP expansion slot the any AGP video card will work. There are a large range of makes and models with different performances from low end to high performance models.
I suggest you Google search for AGP graphics cards and check out the specification and prices. Some computer games require high performance graphics cards and if you are into these games then check out the graphics card requirements for these games.

I want To buy a graphics card Under INR 3600


You should be able to pick up a Radeon EAH4650 with 1GB RAM for about that price. I bout an Asus model for A$85 (about Rs3600) in July last year, so they should be much cheaper now.

I'm running new games (Dragon Age, Borderlands, Batman: Arkham Asylum) at fairly high graphics quality on 1920x1080 resolution, and it performs very well.

Help me to choose right component for Radeon HD4850 512MB ddr5?


run at least 2.5 gig of memory. You can get them cheap on ebay. Processor should be duo core or equivelant. Single processors work, but do lag. Graphics cards are not actually as important as people think. You can use a stock graphics card with good processor and 2-4 gig of memory and have a good gaming computer.

Computer wont let me play game dont want to buy the card i need


sorry to tell you this but the 5500 is very outdated. the only thing you can try is going to http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us fill in your info and download the newest driver. (which is three years old). you might just have to bite the bullet and buy a new card. if you give me a price range i can find you a decent card. that should play just about any game you want. good cards are not always that expensive, you just have to know where to look. coreyabrigo@gmail.com

The criterion of a good VGA Card


10 Things you should know before buying a Video Card





Selecting a video card upgrade can be an intimidating task. Unless you've kept up with all the GPU announcements and performance reports, it's practically impossible to know which cards are worth buying.
Graphics processing units, like CPUs, improve year after year, and that means there's a staggering selection of graphics cards available to choose from and retailers just love to place obsolete cards right alongside the latest and greatest. If you're not careful, you could very well end up paying a lot of money for technology that's already a generation behind. Here are 10 things you need to know about video cards before shopping for one.

1. Memory isn't everything
Here's the deal. You need a video card that has a decent amount of memory to play games at high-resolution with quality graphics settings enabled. Good video cards usually have lots of memory because all of that GPU horsepower will go to waste if you don't have enough memory space.
However, the video card manufacturers know that novice buyers look at memory size as one of the main comparison points between different cards, and that's why it's very common to see cards with cheap GPUs sporting 256MB or even 512MB of memory, which is sort of like dropping a 110-horsepower engine into the body of a muscle car. The underpowered card might have some of the right numbers on the spec sheet, but its poor performance will show once the gaming starts.


2. It's all about the GPU
Memory is important, but the real heart of the video card is the graphics processing unit. When you're browsing through video card names, the most important thing to look for is the GPU type, since that little chip is responsible for all of the video card's 3D performance. Today's best GPUs come from Nvidia and ATI, but it's not enough just to buy a video card with a "Nvidia GeForce" or "ATI Radeon" GPU. You also have to pay attention to the model number since Nvidia and ATI label all their cards from the sub-$100, entry-level cards to the AU$800 high-end monsters with the same GeForce and Radeon brand names. Higher model numbers are better, but you should also pay attention to additional modifiers at the end, such as GT, GS, GTX, XT, and XTX, since they often reveal important shader and clock-speed information. Study a few video card reviews or game performance guides to get familiar with the current models to see how they compare.

3. Pipelines, shaders, and clock speeds
You could look at a GPU's clock speed and the pixel pipeline count to get a rough idea of the card's performance level in the early days of 3D acceleration. Today's GPUs have evolved to do much more than brute-force pixel processing. Lighting and other effects that used to take several pipeline "passes" can now run though a shader program to get the same results with fewer passes and less wasted work. GPUs now have specialised processing units dedicated to crunch through complex vertex and pixel-shader programs. Shader units might become an important specification to watch in future video cards as games become more shader-intensive. ATI has recently started reporting the number of shader units it has assigned to each pixel pipeline in its Radeon X1900 XTX line.



For the time being, you can still judge current GPUs by the number of pixel pipelines they have. GPU manufacturers also report vertex pipelines, but we haven't seen any games that bottleneck at the vertex-processing level yet. Entry-level cards usually have four pixel pipelines. Midrange cards have 8 or 12 pipelines, and high-end cards have 16 or more pipelines. Higher clock speeds are always better, but if you're choosing between pipelines or clock speeds, it's usually better to select more pipes over more MHz. Having eight pipelines running at 400MHz is much better than having four pipelines running at 500MHz.
4. Windows Vista and Direct3D 10
Microsoft plans on shipping its newest Windows operating system, Windows Vista, in early 2007. The new OS will feature DirectX 10, an updated collection of functions that software applications can use to access various system resources, including the 3D graphics card. The new version of DirectX incorporates a new version of Direct3D designed to streamline the graphics pipeline by reducing CPU overhead and moving more work to the GPU. Windows Vista will still work with current DirectX 9 video cards, but you'll need a DirectX 10 video card to run DX10-enabled games at the best settings.
We expect Nvidia and ATI to ship their first DX10 cards in the second half of this year, but you don't need to rush out and get one if you're afraid of game-compatibility problems. Game developers understand that it will be several years before the DX10 installation base surpasses the DX9 installation base. All games, including Vista exclusives Halo 3 and Shadowrun, will be DX9 and DX10 compatible for several years after Vista's arrival.
5. It's (almost) always a good time to buy
The fierce competition between Nvidia and ATI has rewarded us with a fast 3D technology development cycle. The GPU manufacturers release a new line of chips every 12 to 18 months, which results in a steady stream of increasingly powerful cards with more and more features. Manufacturers also tweak designs to increase clock speeds and add new features to refresh product lines several months after the initial architecture rollout. Since many new features are forward-looking, such as H.264 high-definition video acceleration and advanced Shader Model support, it might be a year or two before the actual content becomes widely available.
It's always a good time to buy if you don't have to get the best card available. Video card prices fall quickly since new product introductions constantly push older or slightly less powerful hardware into more affordable price ranges. The worst-case scenario is buying a high-end card right before Nvidia or ATI release a new line of GPUs, but even then, you still end up with a very powerful card that will have no problem running the games you want to play for a very long time.
6. You don't need to spend AU$800
The newest top-end cards ship at AU$800 or more, but you can always find several high-performance cards in the AU$350-AU$500 range. This price range usually offers the best performance for the dollar because it includes a mix of current-generation enthusiast-level cards as well as discounted high-end cards from the previous graphics generation. Check out pipeline and clock speed specifications when comparing two cards from different technology generations. If the specs are roughly the same, go with the newer card since it'll have support for more advanced features. Newer chip architectures are also more efficient so you'll get more performance out of the same number of pipelines.
7. Do you have the power?
System power requirements have become a major concern now that video cards have grown into strong, power-sucking behemoths. Video card manufacturers print the power-supply recommendations on the side of the box. The printed number is often slightly higher than actually necessary since it accounts for poor power-supply quality and overloaded systems. Mid- to high-end single cards usually require a 400W or 450W power supply. Requirements for dual-card setups such as a CrossFire Radeon X1900 XTX configuration start at 550W.
8. AGP and PCI Express
Since its introduction two years ago, PCI Express has replaced AGP as the standard graphics slot in currently shipping systems. PCI Express offers two to four times more bandwidth than AGP, and almost all new video cards come in the PCI Express format. The GPU manufacturers throw a bone to AGP system owners once in a while with a new GPU like the Nvidia GeForce 7800 GS, but all the best equipment comes out for PCI Express first.
If your PC system is more than two years old, it probably has an AGP slot. Upgrading to PCI Express will be expensive since you'll need to replace the motherboard, CPU, and memory, but if your system is more than two years old, it might just be the right time to upgrade your entire PC anyway.

This is the video card buyers bible i wll send the other 2 things you should know in a comment...as well as some nice pics and articles.....
I hope this helps...good luck...thanks for rating my effort.....The Fang.

The Evga 7600GT is a AGP, you can't use this.
The ATI 2600 XT is only warranted for 1yr.
The EVGA 8600GT 256Mb is a Limited Lifetime. If only these three than the 8600GT Would be best.
