As far as I know, it's impossible to upgrade Graphic Card shader model 2 to 3. Buy a nVidia card (instead of ATI) because it has shader model 3. The cheapest one is below $50.

I believe you will need a new video card with more memory at least 256 mb preferably 512 mb if you get one ensure it is for your M.board either agp or pci-e

I have intel-945GM express chipset, and i need to play a game that needs shader model 3 please advice


firstly you need to have a pci express graphics card inorder to play new games. Intel chipsets are NOT for playing games!! You should get at least a Nvidia 8600gts or ati 3650 or similar to game properly- presuming that you have a pci express slot. Be warned that if you get a new graphics card dont go by the series eg, 8 series or 9 series- a 8600gts is better than a 9400gt. A nice graphics card for the money is the nvidia 9600gt. Good luck upgrading

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.

I got a Geforce FX 5500! i want to know... ''Shader 3''?


Don't think you can with that video card.

  1. Operating system: Windows XP/ Vista
  2. Processor: Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon X2
  3. Memory: 1GB RAM (2GB for Vista)
  4. Free disk space: 10GB
  5. Video card: Shader Model 3.0 and 256MB RAM (nVidia GeForce 6800 GT/ATI Radeon X1600)
  6. Sound card: DirectX 9.0c compatible
The Geforce 5500 does not support Shader Model 3.0
You would have to get atleast a Geforce 6 Series for that Shader model.

Pixel and Shader 3.0 Support


Pixel Shader 3 (PS 3), is just a technique used by video cards to render images to your screen.
In order to get a video card to support PS 3 you need to install DirectX 9c (the 'c' is very important, version 9 is not good enough).
Unfortunately your card only supports DX9 not DX9c and will therefore only play games that support Pixel Shader 2 or below.

Your only option in order to play the games you want, is to upgrade your Video card to one that supports DX9c or higher.
Geforce 6 & 7 series cards all support DX9c.
One other thing, if you are looking to upgrade check and see if your card is AGP or PCIe. I have a feeling that they only made the FX5200 in AGP but check it to make sure.
AGP cards are almost obsolete now, but Nvidia & ATI do still make a few and they can be found on large online PC retail outlets or perhaps try and pick up a good one on Ebay.

Hope this helps

Gf fx 5500 no grafix!


Greetings tashaclark19,

The nVIDIA Ge-force 5500 does not have support for the shader models used by today's games, without the support for shader models 2.0-3.0 you can't play most of today's games!

Nvidia GeForce4 MX440SE 128 MB No pixel shader


Run the test below to see what you need to run it.

pixel shader is built into the card so therefore a better card is required to play the game.
