    So I got this new computer a while back, and yeah. It came with this graphics card and it is completely horrible at 3D games.

    Its a GeForce 7100/NVIDIA nForce 630i

    I just refreshed the Windows Experience Index and for the "Desktop Performance for Windows Aero" is 2.1

    Yeah.. Anyone help? Like, know how I can make it better graphics?

    I can barely even play Runescape HD in it, and that game is like..... yeah

    Is it because im running Vista?



    Oh, and Hi. Im new, never been part of a forum group before..

    It's a low end integrated graphics card, so yes, it's crap. To get better graphics you'll have to buy a better card.

    As would I. It's also worth noting that a poor processor, ram or internet connection could be more of an issue for something like runescape.

    well, it looks like the 9500GT cards be had for under $75. i'd go with a better known brand company though in terms of of a product though. like MSI, EVGA, Gigabyte, etc.

    Newegg.com - 9500gt

    yea i think it might be because of vista considering ive got that card on xp and my computer runs realy good it could also be that the other specs of the computer are bad.

    No, it's almost certainly not because of Vista, at least not mainly.

    Also, this thread is dead, and the starter now has a new graphics card in his specs anyway!

    Just saw your other post, and your description of the pc is just as vague here. :D

    How much are you getting it for?

    That PC doesn't sound like a great deal to me. It sounds like some random piece of crap with a quad core and some extra RAM thrown in. But start a new thread for a new topic.

    Incidentally, the GPU mentioned is not a graphics card, it's an onboard solution, and while it's ok for what it is and for its age, no you won't be playing any good looking games. Also, don't assume that you will be able to just slot a better graphics card into an OEM PC.
