My daughter has a Compaq Presario computer, model # 5008US. It use to be Dad's, but Dad stepped up. :
Anyway - They like to play certain games(Sims and Halo) that require a bigger graphics card (32 MB or higher). The processor speed is enough (866 Mhz), and it has 256 MB RAM.
But the onboard graphics controller - Intel(R) 82810E is just inadequate, and will not allow me to install the games.
The computer is equipped with extra PCI slots, and I know how to disable the onboard adapter; but what recommendations does anyone have for a card that is economical, but would do the job?
