Is my graphics card 3D?

I have an Nvidia GeForce2 MX/MX video card. I plan to buy a copy of Civ IV when it comes out next week and it requires a 3D 32mb graphics card. How do I check if this card meets the spec requirement?

When you start up your p/c one of the first things that comes up is the graphic crad details - just have a look at the screen.

At a guess I would think that your card might not be up to 32 as it is so old.

The official specs actually state the minimum is a 64Mb graphics card.

It does state it supports the GeForce 2 series, but I think your card may struggle.

If using XP you can check the amount of RAM on your card by :-

Right clicking on the Desktop


Choose Properties


Settings


Advanced


Adapter


Hope your card meets specs!

I have checked the properties info and it says it has 64mb ram. So, I just hope it's also a 3D card...

It is a 3D card - just a slightly elderly one.
