NVidia video card

I have a Nvidia GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 video card and an AMD 3.0 gig dual core processor and a . I am trying to use Sniper: Ghost Warrior II and it says my video card is not big enough. The card is build in to the mother board and I would like to get a bigger card but I don't know what to get. Don't know if it will even work with this mother board. I need help. I paid for the game, and would like to use it.

What do you mean built in ? Is this a laptop ?

You should contact the maker to see if any upgrade is possible.

Obviously this is a desktop lad :)

You indeed need a graphics card update. But without your power supply specifications, we can hardly help you in which graphics card you'll get.

No, it is a desktop and the video card is built into the motherboard.
Power supply is a Rosewill RV350-2 350W ATX 12V v2.2 Power Supply .

Hey Roastermen, get your facts straight before you make rude comments

His video card came up as a notebook GPU so......

Why would a video card obviously be built into a motherboard, unless it`s a laptop ? Silly me for asking huh ?

Oh, I forgot you`re a computer expert

@kbbgood, you have to give us specs to the equipment you are inquiring about.

If this is it, I would start saving for a new motherboard :)

ECS > GeForce6100SM-M (V1.0/1.0A)

Please post a manufacturers link to the make and model of your motherboard, and post how much you can afford on a new graphics card and power supply.

I highly recommend going EVGA, for both components.

EVGA - Intelligent Innovation - Official Website

Fine start here:

EVGA - Products - EVGA GeForce GTX 960 4GB SSC GAMING ACX 2.0+ - 04G-P4-3967-KR

EVGA - Products - EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G2 Power Supply - 220-G2-0550-Y1

Ya, you can`t always go by someone`s listed specs, as they could be talking about a different pc altogether.

OK, well that`s not a link.

Is this it ?

ECS > GeForce6100PM-M2 (V3.0)

Take a look at the links I provided above in reply #5

Money is your only concern now.

If money is sparse you could consider a 950

EVGA - Products - Graphics - GeForce 900 Series Family - GTX 950

But I would strive to get at least a 4 GB 960

and since you`re running 64 bit, you should really up the ram to 8GB total 2 x 4GB sticks, DDR2 is expensive, but what can ya do.

Components, Memory, Desktop Memory, 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM, 8GB (2 x 4GB) -

If the price is right on the Samsungs, I would grab them today. I can`t believe how cheap they are.

Ok I am running 2 dual video cards, both by Nvidia, 9600 GT & 9800 GT. Do I need to use both CD's to re-install the drivers for Win 7 64? Or are the drivers already updated with Win 7? Or do I need to go to Nvidias website and get the latest drivers?
