Is somebody who know how to enable T&L on an Intel X3000 on-board video?

Sorry to have to tell you this but you dont. If you need T&L for some thing prob a game im guessing then you need a new graphics card.
I had to upgrade when the wife started playing the simms as thet required T&L.

Thank you. I will buy a new one. I think an 7300gt it is ok for medium gaming.

If I were you I would shoot for something in the 7600 family if you are into nVidia. The 7300's are pretty poor performers for pretty much all games (except for maybe Quake III and earlier). I just looked at newegg (don't know where you are, so I'll just assume US) and the difference between the 7300GT and the 7600GT is less that $20.00 ($94.99 after rebate for 7600GT). This will give you a medium gaming card.

His post says his location is Romania. :wink:

Otherwise though, I agree. The 7300/6200 etc etc cards are never really any good for any gaming, I think they're meant mainly for HTPC type systems, to get purevideo in or some such. A 7600 is a fine card though, my friend runs his 24" Dell beasty off it with high settings no problems (and that's with an old Athlon XP..3200 I believe).

My bad, I caught it after I posted, but at that point it was too late.

Yes i agree with the others if you can afford it you should go the bit extra and get a 7600 card the gt for preferance as it is the best one in the range or a gs would most likley be fine.
May i ask what it is you need it for?

Intel GMA X3000 (G965 Chipset) does support hardware T&L. You sure you just don't have the Intel GMA 3000 (Q965 or Q93 Chipsets)? It's possible you need updated drivers for your hardware.

G965 does indeed have T&L... and Intel has promised to deliver drivers to enable the T&L for the last 7 months now. Last promise was made in march. They said the T&L would be enabled by june, and still nothing happened :)

Correct about the T&L support. I bet the reason for the missing driver is because they are working on a DX10 chipset for the sake of Vista and also seems to be starting on making discrete graphics cards if the article I saw at DailyTech (think it was) is true.

Thanks a lot for informations. I'll buy an 7600GT, but meanwhile I wait to see if the Intel release the new drivers for x3000.

Thanks gp2003. This driver WORKS :wink:
