I HAVE A GATEWAY COMPUTER AND IM UNABLE TO PLAY LINEAGE 2 HOW DO I FIX


This could be a variety of things that may be preventing you from playing any games, it could be the power of your computer, memory and CPU speed, mainly Video Memory card may not be enough to play these type of games. For folks that wish to play games you have to have high end type machines in order to really enjoy there things. Standard computers or older ones just do not come with the resources to do such things. Unless you upgrade and read on the box before you purchase "System Requirements" that means a lot and can save you some wasted money. John

I have an emachine t2984 with a factory video card. I want to upgrade my video card but read that there are no expansion slots (PCI-e) to do this. Does this mean i need to buy a new computer to play video...


A video card can use AGP, PCI, and PCI-E slots. If it is a older model it should have either AGP or PCI ( Mainly AGP ). Many video cards are still available for these slots.
If you want to play the top games of these day though, most of the time these slots will not work games like this. They COULD work, but the best cards of today is PCI-E. Good luck and do not forget to rate :)

It doesn't play =((


Do you get any error messages? Try Downloading the updated drivers and install them. Make sure you download the drivers for 64-bit vista OS. Now if it still doesnt work let me know.

PC Monitor and Game problem


Sounds like your dedicate video card bit the dust and you're back using the onboard video, which would absolutely be the reason why things got choppy-- it can handle the demands put on it by the games.

A new dedicated video card would fix the problems.

Which Graphics card is suitable????


The is no solid answer because there are several factors to take into consideration.
First: Vista does not play games well yet.
It was released too soon and the Game Mfg's have not addressed the issue.
Many, many people are going back to XP OS. Do you know the MB mfg?
I am a Beta tester for a few game companies and for the most part, we use the BFG nVidia Video card. It is a GeForce based chipset. These cards are already Overclocked to their maximum and tested as stable. Lifetime Guarentee as well.
Is you MB a PCI-Express?
No matter what card you get, you still may not get to play the games until MS Vista gets in gear.
