Sorry Mr Alpha, I seem to have started 2 threads on this (I wasn't sure where to put it and when I changed my mind it looks like I posted instead of backspacing - I'm not having a very good computer day.... If it's all right with the mods, I'll leave this here because I want to ask about graphics cards). I give some info on the other thread about what I've got, what game, etc. The computer is a Dell GX260 - but it is second-hand so may not have original specs.
It is not as simple as having pixel shader or not having pixel shader. There are different versions and even if a game uses pixel shaders doesn't mean it necessarily needs them.
Question: What hardware do you have, and what game are you talking about?

If you don't mind can you explain "Integrated Intel® Extreme graphics & 4X AGP Slot" to me - is that an empty slot for a graphics card? Most of the cards I looked up seem to be 8x, so would I need to get something secondhand? Is there a limit to what memory I can get? Will it make any difference getting more memory? What else do I need to watch out for? Thanks for any help.

I was talking about the memory of the card, I'm not sure how that is significant or how it fits in with the speed of the CPU (ie is there any point getting lots or will it be limited by the CPU anyway?).
As for the memory if you mean system memory that always helps make games faster but will not fix your Pixel shader issue only a card can do that
