    i have an old pentium 3 dell, i want to use this computer to play games on but i think i will need a better video card. i installed the sims 2 and it only works on 16-bit colour and the highest i can go currently is 24-bit. the card i believe is build into the motherboard or somthing like that. it's an Intel® 82815 Graphics Controller

    the game is still quite slow and laggy, will it make the game run fast if i get a better video card

    so if it's not jsut a waste of money to buy a graphics card, how do i know which one to buy, i won't spend any more than 70 on it

    thanks

    We need more information on your computer. What model is it? Does it have a AGP slot. A new card will help out some.
