Exclamation Graphics Card

Hi, I've always been interested in playing popular computer games, such as, world of warcraft, call of duty, etc. My computer has a hard time handling the graphics and is usually very laggy even on the lowest detail. I don't know much about computers but I guessed that it had something to do with my graphics card. I WILL LINK A PICTURE OF MY SPECS, if anyone can tell me whether or not this graphics card is capable of handling online gaming and if I should maybe buy a new one? Any suggestions would be helpful.

I would recommend that you buy a new graphics card, what are the specifications of your system?

Hi Seandunn18

If you go to your Motherboard manufacturers web site and look for your model it may give you a list of Graphics Cards that are compatible, and when choosing a Graphics Card do check its power usage and your Computers power supply (PSU)

Find out if its compatible first also there are a few variations of the 560 ti >



For most gaming SLI or Crossfire is not needed one good GPU will do the job

I can't see the image, but 560 ti is just a PCI-E x16
As long as you have that slot its going to work...

AGP is what older video cards use to use back in the day.
A slot to stick your video card in. (Accelerated Graphics Port )

You won't be able to use newer video cards with that since all of them use PCI-Express..

This is probably one of the best ones you can get.
Newegg.com - SAPPHIRE 100228L Radeon HD 3850 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card
If you can find them for sale..

I could be totally wrong that "AGP Status: Enabled"" can mean something else but I doubt it...

Personally I would just start over with a new pc

Now that I have seen the first picture
This forum post says
AGP Texture Acceleration is process when textures are swaped from system memory (RAM ) into video memory (VRAM). This is controled by Direct3D and uses certain optimizations to remove unneeded AGP traffic and accelerate texture swaping and other data transfer. If you disable it,your graphic card will work in compatibility mode (almost the same transfer speed as PCI graphic cards). Keep it enabled all the time!
So yeah you have a AGP slot on your computer. Im sure of it.
PCI-Express is x16 of a PCI slot
AGP is x8
PCI is whatever speed that is

Come on guys you should of noticed this!
I remember buying my first video card. Well I begged my dad for it.
It was a x800 I believe or something like that. Playing a game called Joint Operations by novalogic. I was the happiest kid in the world to have such awesome graphics on my computer on a AGP
