There are a lot of graphics cards available that will work in your PC. The key, is that the card you select needs to be PCI bus type. Check the game box's list of requirements to see supported graphics cards, and buy one that matches. Most graphics cards use a number system to describe the 'power', by assigning a larger number to the model to signify greater capability (a 9500 card is more powerful than a 8500 etc.)

It would be better to install a graphic card.
As most of the games recommended requirement is that you have installed a graphic card in your PC.
Also try some troubleshooting steps given here;
Stop un-necessary background running services
Update all drivers
Scan PC with an updated Anti-Virus
Also use game optimization softwares like PCFresher that will turn your computer to gaming mode.

I have an intel 35EC motherboard and i want to buy a GDDR3 graphic card(say NVidia GeForce 150). I'm just not sure if its compatible or not...is thr anyway i cud know if it will work or not. Thanks.


Concerned that the graphic card's GDDR3 graphics memory isn't compatible with the Intel DG35EC's system memory? (DDR2 Sdram)

Don't be.

The graphic card's graphics memory runs independent of the computer's system memory.

The graphic card could have GDDR5 graphics memory, and it wouldn't matter.

1) http://ark.intel.com/products/34689/Intel-Desktop-Board-DG35EC

2) http://nvidiagraphicscards.com/nvidia-geforce-gts-150-information.php

3) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_100_Series#OEM_GeForce_100


What you need to be concerned with is;

A) Will the card FIT in your computer case?

The card is approximately 4 and 3/8ths inches Tall, (4.376) and 10 and a half inches Long. (10.5)
It takes up the room of TWO slots in Width.

B) Does your Power Supply have enough power?
The card uses 141 Watts by - itself when operating at maximum.

Your Power Supply should have at least 24 Amps on the 12 Volt power rail.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Computer powers up but monitor wont displays from video card, so I swithch to motherboard connectors


This may be because your graphics card is not compatible with your motherboard, If you are using a newer Intel motherboard for example with Intel HD Graphics, there may be issues with using an older GeForce card with the board.

Nvida geforce fx5500 256 agp compatible with intel d865gbf ?


Yes, they should be compatible. The Intel d865gbf has an AGP port that supports AGP 4x/8x, and so does the FX5500. You should be fine.

well, alot of factors come into play. First get an ATI 9700, ther less than hundred now, get it from a Computer store that actually has staff that know about computers, dont go to best buy or someplace like that, they only stock the better more expensive ones.

Make sure you get the right one, I.E. AGP or PCI, whichever one your PC is. The graphics card will make your P.C. run better when it comes to rendering graphics so you will see improvement on Games in the way of smoothness and detail. Picture viewing and editing will improve.

If you dont know anything about computers, or enough to get the right hardware, then find an Altek computer store or a comp USA or some kind of store that deals mostly with computers. take your whole unit and go in with it and ask a rep, say, " I need a Video card that fits this machine that meets or exceeds the minimum requirements of this program. Take the program box with you also.

Be prepared for them trying to sell you more than you need, get something thats better than the minimum requirements for the program so that way your sure to not have performanc issues.
