I am having frustrating graphics card problems :fou:  . like about last, i bought a new
MSI P SERIES G41m-p28 [http://bit.ly/RJ4U2O] and put 2 different graphics cards and none worked. :ouch: 

even simple flash games are laggy and games like NFS MOST WANTED cant be played. at first in when the game opens, its all good. but soon, at the menu or at the race, things get messy. boxes of blurred colours and things I cant explain start happening and I cant play it. the two graphics cards I used are
the current one : gf9600gs 768 mb [http://bit.ly/Qrpgv5]
previous one: nx8400 gs [http://bit.ly/PTo7ZX]

and also btw, i installed the driver correctly.
i am desperate to play games now..... :cry:

Both those cards are super old and weak... have you thought about trying a more modern card?

Flash games are very CPU intensive. It's not your video card holding you back, it's your 10 year old CPU. How are you using modern DDR3 RAM on a pentium 4?
