Hey, I bought Call of Duty today, but whenever I play it I get a message that says I need the newest video card. I called their tech support and it said I need a 32 MB vid card, and sadly I only have an 8 MB. My video card is a NVIDIA Vanta, does anyone know where I can upgrade my video card? Thanks.

Best Buy? Some other store w/ computer stuff...CompUSA or the like

You won't regret it, CoD is an awesome game.

Well, there are two slots for video cards, on is the AGP or Advanced Graphics Port that is designed specifically for video cards and the PCI, which is a multi-purpose port.

You'll either have to find your owner's manual & see if it has the info, or open up the ol' case and take a looky on your motherboard (or see through the glass if you've got a window & neon lighting like me :D)

The PCI slots are generally longer & whitish in color while AGP is shorter & black. Most of the graphics cards put out today are AGP. I'd guesstimate that if your system is 5yrs old or younger, you probably have 1 AGP slot already on your motherboard, I'll see if I can find some pics of the two slots for you.


edit: Here is the best pic I could find (they don't allow linking images, so you'll have to click the link), the 5 white ones are PCI, the black one is AGP, I found this on Tom's Hardware (www.tomshardware.com), which is a great place for reviews of hardware, peripherals, and all the latest pc equipment[/fanboy]

Ok, thanks a ton, I'm getting the graphics card after school tomorrow, and hopefully that will fix my CoD problem

You definately won't regret it. CoD would have to be the best World War I/II game.

Well I got the video card, but I'm still having driver problems, so I'll just use their tech support I guess.

Well, I got a new ATI Radeon Card, and call of duty works great, and your right, It definately was worth it. Nothing can Describe how exillerating it is to be right in the middle of a fire fight, in close quarters combat. Thanks again for the help.

yah, I just started it, the battle at Stalingrand is soo incredibly hard, talk about suicide. So far my fav mission would be the very first American one, or Pegasis Bridge, taking, and defending. Great Game.

Yah, I know... I was talking to a guy at best buy about it, I told him that I had the 8MB, his response...

"oh...I'm sorry..."

What Radeon card you got there dude? ;) And.... I have yet to get CoD! :eek:

I Have an ATI Radeon 9000 64 MB, works great with CoD, considering it only needs 32.

The only thing that really sucks is that it cost $80, so I ended up paying $130+for call of duty and the card.
