    I have and Intel Extreme Graphics Card. Is it compatible with Direct X 9 or should I buy a new one?

    Its compatible insofar as it will play DirectX 9 games. However, performance will be lacking to say the least because its an integrated graphics solution. Don't expect to do heavy 3D gaming with it and all the options turned up, but it will handle applications that require DirectX 9.

    I would HIGHLY suggest purchassing a AGP video card. Much better performance. I would suggest nVidia, but thats just me. Some people will say ATI is better
