Graphics Card Advice
This may be the wrong forum for this, if it is, apologies in advance! Wasn't sure where to put it, if I'm wrong I'd appreciate it if a mod could kindly put it where it should be. Anyway, the problem..
Basically all I'm after is advice as to whether I need to purchase a new graphics card altogether. I'd like to play a few games online but when I attempt to do so the frames per second is very low which results in lag. The main game I'd like to be able to play is Wolfenstein Enemy Territory.
These are my specs:
Dell Dimension 2400
Operating system: XP Home Edition
BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS VERSION 1.10 A05
Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.60GHz
Memory: 254MB RAM
Graphics Card: Intel(R) 82845G Graphics Controller
From what I understand Intel no longer supports/produces that graphics card. Ultimately I'd like to know firstly, if the lag is caused by the graphics card as I expect it is (I have 1mb broadband, I therefore doubt it's the internet connection causing lag?). Secondly is there anything I can do to the existing card to improve performance. Or do I simply need to buy another one? If I do have to buy another I don't want to spend a fortune but recommendations would be appreciated.
Maybe it isn't the grapics card at all but that's what I suspect it is. I'm not all that knowledgeable when it comes to computer so I'm in need of abit of help here.
Thanks in advance for any help. If there's any other information you need etc I'll be happy to provide it.
