Graphic Card with Pixel Shader 2.0 or >

Hello friends, I recently bought Sims 3 edition and facing few problems with the installation of the game. I didn't realize the need of pixel shader in-built with graphic card and can't run the game.

 

The present graphic card is in-built with the motherboard and able to play San Andreas and GTA 4 but having Sims 3 crashes coz of absence of pixel shader 2.0.

 

I need suggestions for purchase of a good graphic card that is complete in all respects and don't have to waste extra money on individual requirements of any game that requires any advance components in a graphic card to run the game(s).

 

Please suggest me name(s) of graphic cards that come with pixel shader 2.0 or > and advanced with cool features that is universal to run any damn game.

 

If possible please give product details taking Indian markets for retail outlets.

 

Thanks smile.gifsmile.gif

If you want a GPU that can run any damn game, you need look no further than the Geforce GTX460. Around £120 will get you a card that can hack just about everything currently released whacked right up to top settings.

Since you claim you can play GTA IV, which needs pixel shader 3, then you have more of a software problem. Update your graphic cards/motherboard drivers and try the game again.

I really wouldn't try to play any game with in-built graphics. Like DDS said, get a GTX460 or higher. These run on Pixel Shader, 4.0 i think?

Does anyone other than me notice that this guy posts like cidamelo?

 

Anyway, I do agree that, if you can play GTA IV, then it must be a software issue. We may be able to better help you if you tell us which graphics card you have.

Thanks a lot. For me it is a must and have no more problems after that but shouldn't the installer run even if GTA 4 has the requirement for the same???

 

Thanks all!! smile.gif

Most games will install, and some will actually load, even without the required drivers/pixel shaders/minimum hardware requirements. The problems arise when the game is required to run- that's when it will often just crash or freeze. That said, most newer games will give an error when they are started saying that something does not meet the minimum requirements.
