Hello.Please can any one help?I have a Dell Dimension 5000 Desktop PC but cannot play any of the latest games. I believe I need a new graphics card. Is there anything else I need to do to get going with newer games? I have not done any updates up to now so the pc is still the same as when we had it.
The Dell Dimension 5000 used a chipset that supported Pentium 4 processors... which are NOT sufficient for gaming anymore. If you are to upgrade, most of the cards in the $70 range, like a 4670, should suffice for games like WoW (IIRC the Dimension 5000 did have a PCIe slot)... but, newer games like Dragon Age, simply won't run in any kind of fun/playable way without at least a C2D.
Probably not what you wanted to hear, but I'm not about sugar coating things.
