how to play high graphics games without graphics card

A virtual graphic card for playing high definition games on your non graphic card pc..

Hi friends,i have heard a lot of my friends saying that they are unable to play high resolution and high definition games on their pc and told that they are on a low budget to buy a graphics card.Here is a solution for that:There is a software named 3-D analyzer available in the internet which acts as a virtual graphics card for playing games.
You can enter the graphic card needed from the 4 available graphic cards available and then you can get the attributes of that graphic card..If fine tuned,you can play games at the range of a 128mb RAM virutal graphic card on your non graphic card pc.
Note:Graphic intensive games,that requires atleast 512Mb of graphics memory can't be played through 3d analyzer if you don't have a graphic card,but you can try running it if you have a 256/128 Mb card.
*First download the file from here
*Then extract that software and open the software
*Then,select the exe file of the game that you want to run
*Choose the select option
*Then you can choose the attributes the options you require to play the game
*The attributes may be pixel shader or disable rendering in the game or emulation or some other options specified
*Then,Enter the device id and the vendor id for the graphics card you need from the available graphics card on the right.
*I would suggest the ATI Radeon 9800pro to run most of the games like FIFA 08/09 or prince of persia Two Thrones/Sands of Time
*Then choose the run option and then i assure that the game would run for you at a decent/playable speed.
Note:1.If it shows any error that a file is not found pls reinstall the software.
2.If the screen turns black/blank then play with the options in the s/w, by Trial and error method,if fortunate,may be,you'll be able to run your favorite game.
3.If pixel shader/shader version x.x not found,then select the appropriate shader model and run the game.
All the best..Happy Gaming..If any queries post it below.

I have seen this on a Youtube video and it does actually work, however I'm sure it will be laggy and these days you can buy a pretty decent video card for not much dosh.

I guess I'm not really seeing the point, assuming it even works somewhat. As mentioned, it doesn't take much to add a lower end video card to a system that can play most games out there, albeit at lower levels. As the golden rule states, never expect software to do the job of hardware.

Besides, if you read into it, it only talks about video memory, which is hardly the only factor in playing a game. If you don't have the GPU to go with it...who cares how much memory is available? I am thinking this software is meant to only allow you to install a game that otherwise would check and fail a computer. I still don't see the point of it.

Bottom line...if you want to play games on a PC, you have to make the PC capable. If you want to race a car, you have to make it capable, and so on.

Yea, Im confused how the software can actually make make up for raw horsepower/processing power provided by proper hardware.
