Re: The sims two

There is a little more that you need to do. You haven't supplied what motherboard your using. That is very important, need to know info. So now I have to guess. Update windows. You must have .Net framwork ver2.0. Do not skip other .Netframworks like ver1.0 or 1.1. Go to this link & download DirectX 9.C. :
Uninstall any software you installed through Control Panel. If it fail to uninstall. Download and run ATI cat uninstaller. at this link:
Shut down your PC. Remove the PCIE card & reat it.
Enter your BIOS at boot-up. Make sure the Video section is set to PCI-E card. Save & exit. After windows finishes starting up download your lasted drivers & CCC = Catalyst Software Suite
ver7.12 : If using dual monitore set up within the Catalyst Controll Center

Direct X compatibility issue with new graphics card

Hi tom2badcat, the SIMS game is very picky when it comes to graphics cards. If you look on the SIMS box you'll find their recomended graphics card list. The video card you bought is a low end 8x AGP card. You can try downloading & installing directx 9.0c from microsoft. Click on this link;
If directx 9.0c still fails to install the graphics card is at fault & you should return it. Listed below is a link. The link provides a couple 8x AGP graphics cards that will run both directx 9.0c & the SIMS expansion pack 2. (The graphic cards shown all use faster memory).
XFX cards carry a lifetime warranty. (No# Choice)
Below is a whole list of 8x AGP cards.

Brief Description:
November 2008
The Microsoft DirectX® End-User Runtime provides updates to 9.0c and previous versions of DirectX — the core Windows® technology that drives high-speed multimedia and games on the PC.

DirectX 8.0!?

The card itself does support directx 9. Make sure you are fully updated to the latest version of direct x and using an updated driver.. The fx5200 isn't a very powerful card, though it can support dx9 functions it won't be doing them very fast. As long as you can play a directx 9 game I wouldn't worry about it at all.
