Video card to Play Sims 2

by theantihot / January 19, 2006 11:21 PM PST

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?

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?

Looks like AGP to me, and for $50 I don't think you'll get the best quality, but it will be better than what you have now. More info needed. What motherboard do you have? Can't tell? Find a geek and ask. Can't find one? Download Belarc Advisor, or CPU-Z or SiSoft Sandra to tell you whats inside.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
