notebook video hardware for games
Posted on 2004-09-25
I have a new Dell Latitude D600 notebook for my work. My son wants to play games on it. He installed SIMS2 on it and it crashes. (Screen freezes with all graphics settings on minimum.) I think its because there's no video card, but I'm not sure.
Is it possible to upgrade notebooks to make them suitable for gaming? Can it be done with PCMCA cards?
"Requires a 32Mb Transform & Lighting (T&L) capable video card with DirectX 9.0... Supported T&L cards NVidea GeForce2 or greater, NVidea Quadro series, ATI Radeon 7200 or greater. Non T&L Video cards such as the ATI Radeon 7000 (VE series) and Intel Extreme Graphics 82845, 82865, 82915 requires a 2.0 GHz processor."
The next game he wants to get is 'Dawn of War'...
