Hi friend,

I am a hardcore gamer. but now these days i am in some trouble that i really don't know how to check the size of the internal or built graphics card (Here i am asking about the graphics card which comes integrated with motherboard). my PC is not supporting many latest games like NFS UnderCover. I have motherboard Intel D101. Can you please tell me more about the process??

easy way is to google it, but I found it for you. it is an integrated Radeon 300 series onboard graphics card with 128 mb shared system memory, directx 9, smartshader 2.0 and a few other features. to know more about your motherboard go here http://www2.dealtime.com/xPF-Intel-Matx-Ati-Chipset to know more about your on board graphics card go here http://ati.amd.com/products/MobilityRadeonx300/index.html

oh and I forgot to mention, if its not supporting your games you will have to upgrade to a aftermarket or dedicated video card. You do have a single PCI_Express x16 lane to plug one in, but you will be limited to how powerful a card you can get by how powerful of a power supply you have. If your an ATI fan, I would recomend one made by Saphire, if your an Nvidia fan, one made by either EVGA or PNY should do you good.

Use the tool on the right side to find the appropriate driver. You might have to remove your old driver before installing it.

For either ATI or NVidia, I would recommend XFX. Their warranty and customer service are excellent.

A driver update won't really boost the hardware performance, in most cases only addresses bugs in the previous version of the driver and of course provide better support for newer games.

A PCIe x16 is quite decent, so I suggest you invest in a good graphics card for some serious gaming! :thumbsup:

driver update wont do it, if the integrated card doesnt have the power then it just plain doesnt have the power you will have to upgrade to a new dedicated card. you will probably want a good midrange card. but, make sure your power supply can handle it you may have to upgrade that to.

i would look at the recommendations on the particular games that you play. They will be stated either on the box that came with your games, or on their website somewheres. You want to meet at least their recommended setup for good gameplay. Most have a minimum setup to play, but this won't usually satisfy the hardcore gamer.

See what it requires, then see what you can find that meets your requirements, budget, and motherboard slot type.
