  1. Hello all i was directed to come here because i was having some sims trouble.
    the name of the video card i have now is an NVIDIA riva TNT2 Model 64
    they said that mines doesn't support T&L Shading for the sims2.
    (after seeing my cousin playin sims i asked her can i take this house and download it on my computer..she said yea and when i got home everything loaded find untill i got a little message saying ("Failed to find any directx90.c compatible graphics adapters in this sytem! Please make sure you have a directx9.0c compatible graphics adapter and have installed the latest drivers provided by the manufacturer. The application will now terminate")
    In the other form, they said that i need a new video card. Do i need and directx9.0c compatible graohics adapter? How much do they usually cost?
    And last can you download them from some kind of website?

    Thanks

    Well, let us continue. Basically, you need a new video card. Also, we need your specs. Download this and open CPU-Z. Give us this information from;

    You cannot download video cards, as they are physical upgrades that must be installed in the system. They cost anywhere from about $30 to $600.
