Does it mean your PCI Express slot is not working? You should find out what are recommended hardware requirements for those games. Did you have any AGP slots on your motherboard? If yes beware the Newer Nvidia series stopped the AGP interface the 7 series.Tthe GeForce 7900GS AGP is the fastest AGP card NVIDIA. My PC servis is recommending for resource-consuming games rather hardware
for high requirement. It is up to you whether is enough for you to buy the mentioned graphic card (which would be sufficient according specifications with recommended requirements in case Far Cry 2 game) or a new motherboard with a new PCI Express Graphic card.
