How hard is it to replace a video card in a premade sysyetm like a dell or gateway? also, what are the ype of things one should really look for, cause I'm sure the most expensive isn't necessarily the best....

It depends on how the system was originally put together? Does it have an integrated video card or is it a seperate card?

I don't know about that Com. A lot of people have problems just following simple instructions.

It's like those lego bricks. Just read on the motherboard manual what kind of card goes where, and make sure nothing is loose.

Yeah, after realizing that the footage on the celebrations video was with a geforce 3 and a 1 ghz comp, I've decided that I'm going to wait till graduation for a new comp and just buy a new graphics card for the game. my comp is already a 700 and it has 384 ram, so that with a geforce 4 card (best buy is selling them for $99) I should be set. And it'll cost me alot less money.
