It's not in the league of most desktop 3D cards so don't expect much here. Go ahead and use it's suggested settings and alway try any DEMO version before buying a game. Sorry if I'm unclear here so excuse my next blunt statement -> No. You can't upgrade the video card. And no, it's not a "read 3D" solution.
I am hoping some computer savory folks can help me, because I just don't understand. I recently bought a Gateway T-1628 it has Vista Home premium (32 bit).
I want to play Final Fantasy xi. I went to the official site and it has a program that assess your system to see if you can play it. It gave me a score of 2999 which ranked me right in the middle saying... "We assume that your computer can run FINAL FANTASY XI for Windows enjoyably with the default settings. If your video card exceeds the recommended system requirements, we recommend that you increase the resolution of FINAL FANTASY XI for Windows. FINAL FANTASY XI might run just as smoothly as in low resolution mode. " The video card list at the site doesn't have my video card listed. I have no idea what series my card is in. I have searched online and can't figure it out either. The laptop played Sims2 with 2 expansions and at times the graphics went funky. I don't want to buy FFXI just to find out it doesn't play after all. Is FFXI graphic intense? More so than Sims2? The game and laptop specs are below. I appreciate any help/advice given.
