  1. Hello, I have just got the Sims 2 and I have had the dialog box come up saying that I need the DirectX 9.0c compatible blah blah blah..... and I was up late last night and I have found out that I need a new graphic card. The Graphic Card I have now is the Itel(r) 82810E Graphics Controller. What I want to know is what cards do work with DirectX 9.0c? Thank you!

    Here is other information with my computer: (I don’t know what you need)

    1.0 Ghz
    20G/G Hard Drive
    128 MB Ram (keep in mind that when I downloaded Sims 2 the installed more MBs for me
    Windows XP Pro

    Any of the card produced by Nvidia or ATI in the past two years or so are direct X9 compaitable. given your system specs I would suggest not going for a high end or even midrange card. go for one of the budget models and even then your CPU and ram are going to bottleneck the cards performance.

    you need to find out if you have an AGP slot on your motherboard. it is obviously an intel chipset but what model?

    if you dont know you can download this free utility to find out.
