You need a discreet or seperate graphics card to really play any 3d games. You will almost certainly have to upgrade that power supply to add a seperate graphics card though. kammysue November 6, 2009 10:41:34 PM Ok ty!! If I upgrade the power supply will it help with the game play? I can play the game, it just lags a little and sometimes I can see the color fade or off color.
