Re: Video Chipset - Card
In other words to cut this down (to help you guys out) Im switching from WoW to AoC and I want to be able to play AoC on decent settings (medium - high) so im do-ing up my comp to do this. Ive used some computer component scanners and this is what came up:
The following is a list of what our scan was able to detect:
System Manufacturer: PACKARD BELL BV
System Model: ISTART 2311
Motherboard Manufacturer: PACKARD BELL BV
Motherboard Model: MCP61
Maximum Memory Capacity: 16777216 MB
Currently Installed Memory: 1024 MB
Available Memory Slots: 2
Number of Banks: 4
Dual Channel Support: N.A.
CPU Manufacturer: AuthenticAMD
CPU Family: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4000+ Model 11, Stepping 1
CPU Speed: 1800 MHz
RAM banks are fine. Its just the power supply and Video card im not happy with. Power supply will be easy to buy and attach inside the tower, but the video card im not so sure on because im inexperienced. I wonder if I can just attach it once I get it? and will it replace the video chipset? My friend said if I take out the chipset, uninstall its driver, then put in the card and download the driver for that it will work. This is true stuff?
Ive also just looked in device manager for my video card, this is:
NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (I think I downloaded this) isnt this a laptop one also?
