    Alright her goes another question for you all.
    I have this wonderful program called perfect photo suite 6 which i would love to use on this computer now. It says that my video card doesn't support open GL 2.0. I have googled this and found that my hardware will support open GL 2.0 but the issue is i don't know how to update my hardware to allow this program to work. I went onto dells website and thought i downloaded the updates but how do i know that i did and how do i know which video card is running at present time? Do you understand what i am trying to say i can give information if needed. TIA
    Paulina

    Alright then. I guess that means i either have to buy a video card software or a piece of hardware to upgrade to this. Any recommendations on this??

    What is the exact model number of your Dell system, example: Dell Dimension 3000.

    You will need to buy an actual card, open the computer, and put it in. Word on the street is that it may be better if you don't do it yourself, but get someone who knows how to do it.

    You can't upgrade hardware features with software.
