just having a video card that is capable of playing the game is not enough. You must have a system that is capable of handling the video card.
What are the specs to your computer. or the name and model number

The PCI interface really limits your graphics card possibilities, i think about the best graphics card that is pci is the fx5500, i had a fx5200 that would play hl2, on medium resolution, and medium graphics, and it would still get choppy.

Sure you are. a smart person would have thought about it and realized that to get a decent response about a computer question it would be better if they knew the specs of the system the card was to be installed in.:D

not to rub it in but you wanted to put in a non existant card in your computer says a lot also...:D

would you like to make another smart remark or should we call it quits and just go on about what we are doing


>edit< Biglu is correct about the best probably for your system being the fx5500 or even

That's quite the attack lurkswithin, keep in mine he is a newbie. When i came here i didn't know crap about computers, i couldn't tell you what a motherboard is. But that was pretty funny.

I wasn't trying to attack him just funning with him as when he was funning with me. Didn't the smilies show up?
