  1. No, that's actually one of the worst possible things you can have for gaming. I had a dell Inspiron once with a pentium dual core and that chipset, and I got about 8 fps when I tried to play TF2 with it.
  2. No dude get new graphic card.even it cannot run gta sanandreas on high
  3. Thanks guys
  4. no not really .... i have the same chipset but with a core 2 quad they put them in space saver cases with small psu's you will more than likely need to upgrade chassis, buy a more powerful psu + pci-ex graphics solution. chuck it together with another stick or two of ram and your computer will play games :)
  5. No. It would not run almost any game well.

    Even neverball would not run well for me on my G41 chipset.
  6. i to am having trouble having new game splay on it but i dont knwo what to do should i just ad more ram it it be okay or no?

  9. Ooops I mistook you for the OP. It is suggested that you start your own thread to avoid confusion.


    Card name: Intel(R) G45/G43 Express Chipset

    That is almost certainly your problem. Intel graphics sucks the big one.
    You will probably need to install a discrete graphics card to play any 3d games.
  10. well is there a certain type of that graphics card that i need or no if not send me a link plz
  11. What is your PSU and budget for upgrades?

    Thanks guys

    u can use swift shader 3 to run games at lowest settings
    but it will lag like hELLL :P
    download Swift Shader 3.0 it and paste it into ur games folder
  14. What kind of power supply unit do you have?
    Assuming your PSU is sufficient, I would suggest a Radeon 7850 or GTX650ti.
