Graphic video cards: What do I need to know

#1
I want to upgrade my video card for the sims 2. I have an intel(R) Extreme Graphics 82815; should I stay with the Intel brand or does it matter what brand I go with. and is this something I can install myself or do I need a professional?:confused:

Either Nvidia or ATi should be choice in brand. You need to do some research into how much video power and how much money you are looking to spend.

Top of line Nvidia is the 6800 Ultra around $500, same for the ATi X800 pro platinum. Lower versions of both brands are available at many varied prices, from $50 on up. Of course the more you pay, the more powerful the card, at least most of the time.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
