Hi all, i need some advice please. My girlfriends home PC has a 64mb graphics card. Her little boy like to play Train Simulation games. A lot of the games he wants say you need 128mb graphics, so he cant play them on the home pc. Would it be a huge task to upgrade the graphics card? And what info from the PC would i need to find out to see what card i would need, or even if its possible to install a better card.
As your knowledge appears to be fairly basic, I would seriously think about recruiting some help.
You appear to have "on-board graphics" so as the others have said, a graphics card is necessary as is some more RAM. If you do this the PC will get a wee boost and should be swifter carrying out all its other tasks.
It's all fairly simple stuff but if you have a "savvy" mate to ride shotgun, while you fit new RAM, the new card and load its drivers, the task will seem a lot less daunting.
Many many thanks to all above. I'm going to have a good look and see what my options are. What a great forum this is. Thanks again. I wont tick this as resolved as i may need to ask some for more advice.
