What video card do i need?

  windymillerzone 03:53 16 Jan 2010

I dont understand, before i had windows xp on my dell dimension 3100 and i could run for example games like generals and roller coaster tycoon 3 but now since i've upgraded to windows 7 ultimate, its saying i need to either get a better version of directx or buy a new video card. My directx is 10 so that should be no problem, but i dont know which video card to get because i dont know whats compatible with a dell dimension 3100. :confused:

Someone PLEASE HELP!!!

Thank you

Having had a look at the Dimension 3100 Service Manual & specs at click here, it appears your only option is a PCI card (the PCI-E/Express slot is only x1 and compatible cards are going to be difficult to find).

Any one of these will do: click here / click here / click here / click here

The suggested cards should be OK, but just to be on the safe side before you purchase, please provide links to those games so we can have a look at their system/graphics requirements. G
