Dear All,

I am facing issues while trying to play EA Sports FIFA 07 on my PC which is equipped with the following:

1. 1.5 GB DDR2 RAM 533 MHz.
2. Intel Dual Core 2.66 GHz.
3. 160 GB HDD
4. Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS.
5. Samsung 2033 SWPlus TFT monitor.

Playing FIFA 07 has become a pain. Whereas, when I had a LG CRT 14" monitor, the game could be played without any problems.

Please advise.

Many thanks in advance.

you upgraded your monitor and your video card can't handle the resolution, less monitor or more card
When I replaced my 19"wide lcd(1440x900) with a 22"wide LCD(1680x1050) my 8800GT was all but useless, so I got a GTX260+, solved that problem nicely

This is very good.

What do you suggest that I do? Would a 9500 GT or a 9600 GT suffice?

How do I go about discerning as to which graphics card driver would be the right choice?

Many thanks in advance.

19" wide lcd and 9600GT mild gaming, 9500 is borderline basic, 9800GT getting serious

Excuse my ignorance. But would a 9800 GT mean that I would need to part ways with my Intel Dual Core 2.66 GHz and 1.5 GB DDR2 RAM, not to mention my one and a half year old Biostar motherboard?

Thank you for your help.

no, if money was not a object with a 500W PSU GTX260+, 750W PSU runs any single card

Aha. Thanks. I will start shopping for one.

On a side note, would it help if I "overclocked" my 8400 GS?

Nvidea numbering system has low power cards under x500, (8300, 8400, 8500) the more powerful above x600 (8600, 8800), so you are asking if overclocking a no performance card is worth it, from a gaming point of view, no, from a experience point of view, well practice make perfect, I used to build race cars, the way to tell if the driver was driving the car to the limit was to see if he crashed, likewise if you didn't blow an engine, well it wasn't making all the power it could, then you know what not to do or how fast not to go, likewise with computer components, OC'ing to the limit, when it melts, well that was too much, so that decision is yours to make, good luck whatever you do
