  2. thank you mister g you have been very helpful
  3. hey you can upgrade your Gpu
  4. Sims 3 is a modern game with descent graphics, geforce 4mx is a budget variation of a 3D card that is 7 generations old.
  5. Unless you just have an old system or really outdated video card you should be able to run the Sims 3 with absolutely no hassle.
    (modern gear built 2006 or later with good bells and whistles should eat it whole.)

    You do realize what Geforce4MX is right? If I recall correctly, its not even a based on the 4th gen TI cards, but rather an upgraded version of the 2MX, which was based on the Geforce2GTS. We are talking about a card that will get beaten by the Intel GMA 4500 line...

    Sure I realize what it is.
    I was trying to say if you had a really kick ass system built back a couple of years ago you should be able to run it, but you would need at least a 7600 GT or better with shader model 3 support.
    The MX 440 would choke hard on the Sims 3
  8. I have a computer with an integrated 4MX

    To answer your question, No it wont. And if your motherboard was built around the same time as the Chip, you are limited to only PCI graphics cards.

    There's an example. it's not one i recommend you get, simply because i don't know anything about the performance of the 6200 card, but just so you know what your looking for in case you decide to buy a card. (and you only have PCI slots)
  9. is a video graphics card something yo can buy?
  10. yes, what computer do you have? I assume you are looking to play Sims 3?
  11. i have an hp laptop. I'm not a computer type person so I don't know what I would tell you. Is there anything I need to look at on the external part of it? And yes I'm looking to play the Sims 3.
  12. laptops are very difficult to upgrade graphics, for most you simply cant do it.

    try running the game-o-meter for the Sims 3
