Hi, i'm getting an ATI Radeon 2600XT for this system soon. But any AGP card *should* work fine (i'm hoping), just stick to midrange cards due to the low-grade power supply. I will post after the install and let you know how it goes.

The black ops freezes in the same place over and again i escape the chair i get punced and that is as far as i get i have reinstalled the game starting over and did not work how do i get passed that?


The graphics card doesn't support this game. Many realistic type games "Highly Realistic Graphics" need the added performance of a dedicated higher end graphics card. Example: I'm a huge gamer and I play games that you could/would play on the Xbox One or PlayStation 4. So my Gaming Video Card cost me $480 US dollars. ( High End )
Look at the recommended, supported Video Card for Black Ops and go from that point "Note" If your computer is a laptop; chances are, you will not be able to do any video upgrades. You'd just be out of luck and your laptop wasn't made for higher end games. If it is a Desktop, you might be in luck. To upgrade a desktop: (1) Available video card slot (2) Does the computer case support a video card upgrade (3) What power supply does your computer have and what WATT Power supply does the new video card need. Most higher end video cards need a higher WATT power supply - So standard power supply 350 WATT - Video upgrade average 500Watt to 800Watt.

Hope this helps, Have a great night..

Can u replace the Asus U50A graphics card and a list of the upgradable cards?


Quick answer : No. This laptop is not upgradable as far as graphics, few are in fact. You can still play older games (2006 & before) If you need better graphics, you need a computer equipped with nvidia or ati graphics. If want to play all the newest games you need a higher-end machine such as alienware or equivalent.

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.

Unsupported pixel shader version detected.2.0 what does dis mean im having a graphic card Nvidia FX5200 what to do i want to play the game


Hi,
This message might mean that the game requires a pixel shader more than 2.0 as the graphic card you have, got pixel shader version 2.0. A pixel shader is a type of program often used with games which allows your card to perform per-pixel effects meaning more pixels per second which increases the quality of the game. In this case Devil May Cry 4 uses high graphics and therefore a higher version of shader. You might wanna upgrade your card to Nvidia 8600gt or more to get better performance.
Hope this is helpful
Best regards

Card, Graphic, 128, X800, SE need to up grade the new high end


if you dont want to have to upgrade your power supply. your pc only has a 350w in it.
i would suggest the Nvidia 8800 GT if you dont have a budget or the 8800 GS if you dont want to spend too much.
both run 512mb and are superb for gaming. make sure you get some extra cooling in your pc so as not to overheat, these cards put out quite a bit of extra heat.
both are compatible with the dimension 8400.
