This will all depend on what the motherboard of your computer will except. There are three ways or types of cards to install. PCI (Oldest) AGP (Old but Good) and PCI-Express x16 (New and Best).

When you go to you local electronics store and look at video cards, the box will indicate which type of card is in the box.

If You open your computers access panel, you will see the ports in which have to upgrade your pc. PCI is usually white. AGP is usually brown and PCI-Express is usually black, blue or yellow. If you have your model number of you PC, you can go to their website and find the specs of the PC to find which ports you have.

Hint: If you take the panel off and have a flashlight, the ports on the inside are labeled. The print is always white in color and very small print, so it may be hard to read.

If all else fails, open the panel on your computer, take a good, close, bright picture and email it to me gdlkn84as@yahoo.com and I will let you know what you got to work with. Or, having the model number of your pc or motherboard will help aslo!

As far as installing the video card, very simple granted you know what type of card to put in.

If needed, you remove the old one and pop the new one in. When windows loads and says it has found new hardware, you can tell windows to look for drivers on the internet. If that doesnt work, the video card will come with a CD. Pop that bad boy and follow the on-screen-instructions when the setup program starts.

If thats all your doing is free games then you shouldnt need to upgrade to anything fancy first you need to find out what ports your pc has and what you need, theres pci, pci express 1 or 16x and agp find out that and go from there once you have that go find a nice little video card and crack open the case and find your port unscrew the little metal cover on the back of the system and plug your new card in there screw the card down and plug your monitor into the new card and boot the system and use the provided cd to install it the rest of the way

Hi i need to upgrade my old pc . i whant to buy a graphic card to play all the new games 2011 but i dont know what g card to buy. my motherboard it is :Mainboard >>> > Manufacturer :...


if you have a old PC then upgrading the graphics card alone will not get your computer up to date to play 2011 games, you might need to buy a whole new 2011 computer. Go online and do a system requirement test of the game you are willing to download or buy and play.

WHEN I TRY TO PLAY SIMS 3 GAME I GET A EROR MESSAGE YOUR VIDEO CARD DOES NOT SUPPORT SHADER MODEL 2 PLEASE UPGRADE YOUR CARD


a Video card (aka a Graphics card) is a physical component in your computer that renders images and graphics, the higher quality graphics card you have the higher quality of games and images you can play/render.

so what this error means is the graphics card that your computer currently has installed doesn't support a model of shader (think shadows) which is needed to run Sims 3 properly

you can upgrade these cards, but it all depends on other components of your computer as to which would be most suitable for you

if you know anyone with knowledge of computers consult them as it would be free, or otherwise you'll have to have a consultation with a computer technician at your local computer store

hope this helps.

My asus m50sa over heats and locks up when im play games all fans r working proprely i think i need a video card


You may need to upgrade your video card. On my desktop at home, we would play graphically demanding games on it pretty often. While we stayed within the system requirements, our computer would often overheat, despite the fact that all of its fans were working properly. If you push the video card too hard and too often, it will cause the computer to get very, very hot. Upgrading the video card and adding another fan solved the problem, although I don't know how to upgrade your video card on a laptop.

I dont have graphics card now so i cant play some big games


You won't be able to play bigs games, Usually with the games, it comes with a system min requirement and the min direct x version need to play those games. If you do not meet the min requirement, then you cannot play that game, and you will need not just to upgrade the video card but maybe mem, cpu and direct x to meet the min requirement.

Graphics card upgrade on Acer Extensa 5230E-901G16Mn laptop


Unfortunately, laptops are generally locked down in terms of graphics cards. The GPU is integrated into the laptop mainboard due to space constraints.

Your only option if tied down to a laptop for any reason would be to purchase a more recent laptop with a specific graphics card in it.

Any discrete (NVIDIA or ATI) graphics card that was manufactured after 2008 should be sufficient to run most games.

If you're looking to play games on more intense graphic settings, your best bet would be to look for laptops with the NVIDIA GeForce 9600M/240M or better, or the ATI Mobility Radeon 4600/5400 or better. Either brand with at least 512 MB of video RAM will work well.

My xbox dont play games it just plays dvds how do i fix it


1. Make sure your game discs are all clean, free of scratches, etc.

2. Test multiple games to ensure that it isn't isolated to just one or two discs

3. Unplug your 360, wait a few minutes, plug it back in, and attempt it again (full power cycles sometimes help these strange issues.)

4. Ensure you have the latest firmware upgrade (you'll need to connect the 360 to the Internet to download the latest upgrade.)

Also, if your 360 is modified in any way, this could affect your ability to play game discs, depending on the settings and the type of modification.

If above given steps do not work, kindly send yor Xbox 360 to MS support, and do not try to flash your drive at home, it would void your warranty

Problem playing 3d online games


The lag is caused by the grahics card memory. 32 mb is not very much for todays games. I would suggest upgrading to a graphics card with at least 512 mb on it. Hope this helps.

Im out of video card, i got low memory, i dont know if video card are missing or graphics card.. im out of graphics everytime i played games..


You most likely need to upgrade your Video Card to a Card that has more RAM... Find out if *********** Board has AGP or PCI-Express slot, hopefully you don't just have PCI slots, but chances are if you are on a Desktop you can upgrade your Video Card.
