computergenesis, when did you get your video card? If its a couple years old I recommend upgrading. You can get 8800 type cards, I think there under 100 bucks but not sure. If you have a labtop that has a slot for a video card, should be able to just hook the card up on the side of teh labtop, this way you do not have to take your computer apart. Labtops are beginning to replace desktop computers and will get more advanced in years to come obviously. if you have a desktop your going to need to open up your computer and find the video card if your going to upgrade. Also Son of Peragus, Ill look it up for ya on teh DDR2 thing.
