    Go to my guide and this should help:

    Personaly to tell you the truth I never heard of your videocard :haha:

    Neverwinter Nights 2 needs a really good videocard to play it ( atleast series 7+ like the nVidia 7800 to run it with good Frames per second )

    Hope I helped, if you have any problems or questions just ask :)

    yeah he put it all together so I just copied and pasted it because I didnt feel like scrolling up to see what he wrote :haha:

    Well, I dont like PCI because you cant really game with it ( except for games like WoW and stuff but WoW is really boring ;) )

    Plus im more of a RTS / FPS guy instead of MMORPG

    Yes it is an onboard card. Simon would need a standalone AGP/PCI/PCi-E video card to have any hope of playing NWN2. Just post your computer's motherboard brand name and model number and we'll tell you what card is appropriate for it. Download SIW from here and run it. Click the motherboard option in the left pane and in the right pane, some information about your motherboard will appear. From this, tell me what is under Manufacturer and Model. These will be the first two options on the top.
