Windows XP: Dell E310: 128 MB Video Card w/ Support for Pixel Shader 2.0

This question is not answered

Okay, I really need help. I bought the a new game (The Sims 3) and it wont work on my computer because we don't have the right video card qualities. I'm only 15 so I'm a complete NOOB at this. It says I need a 128 MB Video Card with Support for Pixel Shader 2.0. That is the only thing I THINK I need right now, but I don't know how I can get one for a very low price. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME!

  • This question has been asked many times regarding the Sims game and the system.  You need to get a dedicated video card as you do not have one right now.  Your system can only take the older PCI cards.  HERE is the one recommended which meets the requirements.  You may or may not find this card at a local store.  If you do, it will most likely be a lot more money.
