Intel integrated graphics aren't good for games. Are you interested in buying a new one? We can help you find one.

What is the make and model of your computer, or your motherboard model. Also, list your system specs. Also, what is your price range?

Go to control panel, then system. How much ram does your system have?

I looked up your motherboard, and you have a pciex16 which is for graphics cards. If you're only playing counter strike source, you could get a fairly cheap card, $50 or less.

That's not bad, especially if you're running xp.

So are you interested in a new graphics card? If so, give us a price range. Are you going to be playing other games too? If so, what are they?

If you want a graphics card, you'll also need to tell us the specs of your power supply. Open up your case, and tell us how many watts it has, and how many amps on the +12V rail. This should be on a label on the side of it.

I was 14 when I first started ripping apart my computer, you're never too young :thumbsup: ! If your mom really doesn't want you to though, then you should listen to her.

If you are interested still, you will need to open your computer up, and read us the label off the power supply. The power supply is the big square box that is most likely located in the top part of the back of the computer. Make sure you unplug the computer from the wall outlet first though, and touch something metal to ground yourself so you don't damage any components with static.

Also, are you located in the United States? I want to know because if you are, you can order from newegg.com, which is the best site for purchasing computer parts.

If you're going to put the graphics card in yourself though, can't you just open up the computer and let us know what the label on the power supply says? You won't need to touch or remove anything inside the computer, only take the side panel off. This would be a great card to get, and ironically, I was just helping another guy from Australia in a different thread and he sent a link to this site. http://www.sapphiretech.com/us/products/pr...d=269&grp=3

Once again though, I don't want you to disrespect your parents if they don't want you to do this.

Don't worry you didn't waste our time :thumbsup: . It's good that you know now, and this may help others in a similar situation as you!
