ok; two things. first of all, what kind of computer do you have? does your motherboard have a pci express of an agp slot? one must first know some basic things like that. second, what resolution and detail level do you play at?
I have a 32MB ATI 128 Rage Ultra (or something) which basically lags and trips up when I play the Sims 2.
I don't want to pay more than $50, because I only use it to play the Sims.
What would be a good video card?
