Default T1440 PCI Card

Hey,

My sister just got The Sims two for her computer. She has onboard video. It's an E-Machines T-1440. It wouldn't work on her computer because it said that she needed to get a video card. Now, my problem is that I need to know if she can get a 64bit pci card, or a 32 bit. Also, what would be a card for her that can handle The Sims 2. That's probably the only "graphical" game she'll be playing. Anyways, yeah. I would appreciate it if you guys could help me out on this issue as you have before on a lot of other issues.

The most powerful PCI card is the ATI 9250 PCI version. Their are also PCI versions of the mx440 floating around. My recomendation would be a 440.

the PCI bus limits the graphics. E-machines are not designed to handle high end games.

Check out some benchmarks to see if a 440 will even run sims 2.
