How can I state this politely?

The Nvidia GeForce 9500GT is a definite step up from using Integrated Graphics.
No debate needed there.

But it only has 32 Stream Processors.

Think of Stream Processors as a 'Graphics Information Highway'.
They are essentially the lanes of the highway.
The more lanes you have, the more graphics information can be transferred from the graphics card to the Processor, and vice-versa.

Having 32 Stream Processors is like having a 'Bottleneck' in the road.
Equate that to a roadblock put up for road construction, where 8 lanes are dwindled down to 1 lane.
Traffic slows down.

This is seen when using intense games. Frame rates drop down, the game freezes, and graphics are poor unless on low settings. (Or not at all)

Here, take a look at Evga's version of the Nvidia GeForce 9500GT graphics card.
Read the Specifications at the bottom, watch the video.

However!
A decent graphics card shouldn't 'Break the Bank'.

You don't need a $500 graphics card to slam those games.
You might want to look into an Nvidia GeForce GT 240 graphics card.

96 Stream Processors.
512MB of DDR5 graphics ram memory. (That's DDR5)
550MHz Core Clock
1340MegaHertz Shader Clock
3588MHz Memory Clock

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=5516908&CatId=3669


Better than that?
Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 Superclocked.
1024MB of DDR5 graphics ram memory.
192 Stream Processors.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6655890&CatId=3669

For the above two graphics cards you need a decent power supply.
IF, the power supply you have DOES produce an honest maximum wattage of 400 Watts,
AND has at least 30 Amps on the 12 volt power rail. (Or 12 volt power rails), you're okay.

I would recommend an OCZ StealthXStream 2 / 600 Watt power supply though, when you can afford it.
It can produce over 700 watts if kept at a temperature of 48.4 degrees Celsius.
(119.12 degrees Fahrenheit )
Has FOUR 12 volt power rails that can supply up to 18 Amps EACH.
(Total of 72 Amps)

Has all the power cables you'll need, plus ones for the above graphics cards.
(Can handle them with NO sweat)

CAN YOU SUGGEST SOME RPG/ACTION/ADVENTURE GAMES SUITABLE FOR A PC LIKE I HAVE?


I would upgrade to 4 gb ram before playing closer to current pc games. This can be done very inexpensively.

As for game suggestions. Try The original Witcher:Enhanced edition, World of Warcraft is good, Elder Scrolls Oblivion. You may want to loiok into emulation software as well. Try out SNES9x, or Gens32

It seems like you have either a thermal problem (processor cooler defective, undersized or incorrectly mounted) or a defective power supply. I'm about 90% sure that the problem is thermal.

Sims 3 crashes


Hi. Well that is obvious if the memory as well as the virtual memory drops below the required level. Your VGA settings (Graphic Adapter) might also making the game crash. It is a good thing to disable AVG temporarily while you play the game. (Please let me know your System's specifications as well. Like RAM size, VGA size, Processor Speed and Hard Drive Capacity - Both free and used capacity. If you have default specs for the Dell I6400 no need to include). Otherwise it will use the memory and virtual memory to scan the activities of the game.
You have to keep some vacant area in your System Partition (In which you have install the Operating System). Virtual memory page file is 1.5 x the size of RAM. But you can increase the size. But you have to have a faster hard drive as well because it will be used more when you increase it. The other option is to upgrade your RAM (installing an additional RAM if the PC supports). Most of the modern games require way too high performance PCs. Most of the time RAM and VGA.
To increase the Virtual Memory:
  1. Right click on My Computer icon and go to Properties.
  2. Click on Advanced tab.
  3. Click on Settings under the category, Performance.
  4. Click on Advanced.
  5. Click on Change under Virtual Memory.
  6. Select a free Partition (Which had more than the size x 1.5 of your RAM)
  7. Select the option System Managed size if you do not wish to do it manually. If you want to configure manually, select the Custom size option and enter the size which I mentioned before in BOTH the boxes.
  8. Then click on SET.
  9. You may be asked to Reboot the machine. Do so if asked to.
  10. Then play he game.
  11. If possible please upgrade your RAM.
Sims 3 System Requirements are as follows:
  • FOR WINDOWS XP

  1. 2.0 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
  2. 1 GB RAM (512 should be enough however)
  3. 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
  4. The latest version of DirectX 9.0c
  5. Microsoft Windows XP Service Pack 2
  6. This one is very important: At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games.
  • FOR WINDOWS VISTA

  1. 2.4 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
  2. 1.5 GB RAM
  3. 128 MB Video Card with support for Pixel Shader 2.0 (not enough)
  4. Microsoft Windows Vista Service Pack 1
  5. At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games
  6. For computers using built-in graphics chipsets under Windows, the game requires at least:
  • Intel Integrated Chipset, GMA 3-Series or above
  • 2.6 GHz Pentium D CPU, or 1.8 GHz Core 2 Duo, or equivalent
  • 0.5 GB additional RAM

  • FOR MAC OS X
  1. Mac OS X 10.5.7 Leopard or higher
  2. Intel Core Duo Processor
  3. 2 GB RAM
  4. ATI X1600 or Nvidia 7300 GT with 128 MB of Video RAM, or Intel Integrated GMA X3100.
  5. At least 6.1 GB of hard drive space with at least 1 GB of additional space for custom content and saved games
  • This game will not run on PowerPC (G3/G4/G5) based Mac systems, or the GMA 950 class of integrated video cards.
Windows Supported Video Cards NVIDIA GeForce series FX 5900, FX 5950 6200, 6500, 6600, 6800 7200, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800 9300, 9400, 9500, 9600, 9800 G100, GT 120, GT 130, GTS 150 GTS 250, GTX 260, GTX 280, GTX 285, GTX 295 ATI Radeon™ series 9500, 9600, 9800 X300, X600, X700, X800, X850 X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950 2400, 2600, 2900 3450, 3650, 3850, 3870 4850, 4870
Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) GMA 3-Series, GMA 4-Series
Laptop versions of these chipsets may work, but may run comparatively slower. Standalone cards that are installed in vanilla PCI slots (not PCIe or PCIx or AGP), such as some GeForce FX variants, will perform poorly.
Integrated chipsets such as the ATI Xpress and the NVIDIA TurboCache variants may default to settings that are higher than what would be optimal for them. Graphics settings can be lowered to improve performance.
The NVIDIA GeForce FX series is unsupported under Vista. MAC OS X Supported Video Cards NVIDIA GeForce series 7300, 7600 8600, 8800 9400M, 9600M GT GT 120, GT 130 ATI Radeon™ series X1600, X1900 2400, 2600 3870 4850, 4870 Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) GMA 3-Series.
So make sure to meet at least the minimum requirements.
Enjoy Gaming.

The processor is too weak - get at least an i5, best would be a quad core i7; the hard drive will be filled faster than you thing - bigger is always better; get some faster memories - at least 1666 MHz, 4 GB is bare minimum, get a 64bit OS and 8 GB for real performance; the power source is at the limit - for best result get one of 600W; as for the video card the best for photoshop is Nvidia Quadro CX, even ATI Fire will be better than any gaming card.

I would back off the 9500 GT and get the onboard video working first.

I would also suggest that you don't have a good enough PSU for that 9500 card, Corsair memory, and the and the AMD 64 x2 5200.

That could account for the slowing down and occasional blank out. The Extreme 450 is much better suited for a milder, stock system.

For that system I would suggest a GOOD PSU at least 650 and preferably 700 to 750.
