Well, a normal and average soundcard doesnt cost that much. and to check the version of your soundcard, type the command "dxdiag" on the run command on windows

Far as i knew, currently, there havnt any cards can support pokemon x/y,inclued gateway 3ds and mt-card,and all 3ds game cards can just support run 3ds games on N3DS/XL v4.1-4.5.

if your computer doesn't meet the minimum requirements for the game which is

Hi,

According to the specs of your motherboard it supports PCI Express x16 graphics cards.

See HP Pavilion a1320n Support

You can get a start by going to Tiger Direct and looking at their video card selections.

Here's a link: Tiger Direct PCI Express Cards

You can get several different memory amounts on the cards. I would probably stay with a minimum of 512MB.

You need to watch the connections. If you use a VGA connector to your monitor, make sure the video card has one. Some only have HDMI or dual HDMI.

Of course you can always find them at most Big Box stores such as Staples, etc.

Ask questions. Make sure what you buy is compatible. Hope this helps.

Thanks for using Fixya.

NOTE: Keep in mind that smooth video is interdependent on RAM, CPU speed AND video card.

About the size of onboard graphic


ASUS P5KPL-AM SE
Onboard-Video: Intel GMA 3100 Graphics Controller, w/ 256MB Shared Memory
Video Slots: 1x PCI-Express x16 Slot
source: http://www.smksuperstore.com/product/P5KPLAM_SE-52785.aspx Note: I quickly checked Asus's website and the manual (
http://www.asus.com/Product.aspx?P_ID=xs6iinKxu0y5agcg
) but it didn't appear to give a direct answer.



Also note that even if the motherboard supports both onboard+PCI-E, G31(GMA3100) graphics wouldn't help much at all, trust me. You'll want to buy a new PCI-E card if you plan on doing any gaming. Not knowing what game(s) you plan to play, your budget, and what processor you have makes it tough to suggest an exact video card. So, check out this site to select the best card for your budget and game play:

Best Graphics Cards For The Money
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/best-graphics-card,2362.html


You can definitely get a real good card for under $100. Perhaps a Radeon HD 4850. Lastly, I highly recommend you buy from NewEgg.com.

Computer wont let me play game dont have sound card not buying the little sound card that might not work


Any standard sound card these days will support DirectX 9 or 10, these costs anywhere from $12-$100 depending on quality and brand. Many good ones exist at about $20-$30.

Hope this helps FixYa,

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.

System Requirements


With your Extensa you should be fine with the video and sound cards, as long as yours meets the 2ghz + 1g RAM, you shouldn't have any problems with the game. If you are, try updating to the latest sound and video drivers. Also, if you're sitting on 1g of RAM now, you might consider bumping it up to 2g. This will help it run smoother and avoid crashing during a gaming session.
