View Full Version : Do I need Video card to 4 table?

Just a quick question. My dad bought me a computer for graduation and I told him I wanted a video card just in case I ever need one. Instead I got a sound card and looked online and saw that they dont even offer a video card with the computer. Can the computer run 1600x1200 res. and 4 tables without a video card? I would obviously try it myself but i dont have a monitor like that yet.

every computer has a video card, else you would not see any display. Your video card is most likely onboard. You have not present enough information whatsoever for anyone to help you, computer model, brand, ANYTHING. give us something to go on, you may very well be able to add a third party video card to the comptuer

sorry about that, I assumed all onboard video cards were about the same.

The computer is a gateway 5310SE
Intel Pentium 4 2.93 GHz
504 MB RAM
Intel 82915G/GV/910GL Express Chipset Family

need anything else?

i am no computer guru but i assume your video card is capable of 1600x1200. it's about your monitor. what do you have?

Well I know my monitor can't, its a cheap one that came with the computer. But I am interested in getting a good one later.
