  1. Helloooooo!
    I need a DirectX 9.0c compatible graphics adapter to play the Sims 2. My computer says I have DirectX 9.0c;I have updated the drivers but the game still wont run. How much would it be to purchase a new graphics card, and does it matter what kind of computer I have? Somebody pleeease help!!

    Please give us your complete system specs:

    If your computer is a "brand name" like a dell or something, give us your model number. Otherwise please give us your:

    motherboard make/model:
    CPU:
    GPU:
    PSU:
    Ram:
    OS:

    Then we can make some suggestions on what would be best to upgrade.

    Cheers!

    Hi and welcome to Techspot!

    To help you, first we need to know what are your system specs (motherboard especially), then, if you play a lot with your computer, and finally, how much can you spend on a graphics card.
    If you donĀ“t know what are your system specs, you can download a good program for that:

    If you do light gaming, and you are on a budget, I would recommend this card:

    If you are really on a budget, then this one is for you:

    They should play the Sims fine.

    Or if you want to spend a little more, and play newer games with good speeds, then this one should do the trick:

    Obviously, we need first your system specs, so we can help you better.
    Hope this helped to give an idea about the prices.

    Regards!
