Sims 3, help, Shader Model 2 being on video cards?

Hello,
I have a dell with celeron d with windows xp. I latley just purchased the Sims 3 which I couldn't wait to play. But then there was a pop-up saying I need at least shader model 2. I need information please. I need all the info on shader model 2 and it being on video cards. This is all new to me, so I need to know, do I need a physical card with shader model 2 on it, or will I need to download it on the computer?

  1. You are going to need a physical (discrete) graphic card, the spending of cash may be in your immediate future. :)
  2. What kind of card do you suggest I get for functioning my game. And were do I get it exactly.
  3. What card would depend on your budget, although with that machine it's not going to break the bank. As for where to get it, online or brick and mortar store, it's up to you.
  4. We need to know what computer you have. Brand name, model #.
  5. you really need to read the system requirements of the game before you buy it. Read the reccomended system requirements, not the minimum.
  6. Thanks so much for the info. I'd be lost without have finding this site. I'll definetly be back sometime for more question asking. Buy the way, If you like pokemon you should realy check out serebii.net if you don't know about it, it rox! And so does the sims 3 if it would work. :( Bye for now.
  7. One last question, I've seen sites were you can download the shader m. 2. Will those work? And If I do buy a physical card, How does it get into the computor? I hate technology! >:(

    No, you need to get a card first.
