Windows 7: How can i increase graphic performance of my pc

The short of it is that you won't be able to run pretty much any modern game at great framerates or effects.

But I think to address you question about performance--for the games that will benefit--try this: AlacrityPC

Basically, it shuts down unneeded system services and processes that would better be used for your gaming. It has built in profiles and allows you to specifiy which processes and services you want shut down. If you run the built in, default profile, take caution. Some of the services or processes that will shut down may make your pc vulnerable if connected to the internet. Try it out and see if it works for you.

Those recommendations seem way high to me considering that this is a pentium D processor. I would suggest something more in the Nvidia 8600GT to 9800 series based on the rest of his system capabilities.

but i dont have graphic card
all i have is a inbuilt graphic memory
can any driver or software can incrase the graphics??
The issue has to do with CPU, GPU, RAM, and other peripheral data that is simultaneously bussed. Think of a computer's bus as, collectively, wires that transfer data back and forth between the components. Depending on the system's hardware, only so much data can be transferred at any given moment.

One issue with integrated gfx is that it uses the system's RAM, unlike dedicated gfx cards which have their own RAM. Up to a point, as Wishmaster notes, integrated gfx suffices for basic functions, which would include low-end games, e.g., Myst I or Age of Empires. As the complexity of the game increases, more RAM is required by the game itself which, in the case of integrated gfx, is "stolen" from the system RAM in greater quantities. Eventually a point is reached whereby the system bus cannot handle the quantity of the traffic generated by the game AND the system: there simply is not enough wires.

AlacrityPC that Mpcrsc562 mentions attempts to attenuate system demands on the bus by shutting down non-essential services/processes. Simultaneously, demands on the RAM are decreased - all of which leaves more wires for the game.

If gaming is your goal, I would suggest that you not consider gfx cards in a vacuum, i.e., what are the capabilities (e.g., native resolution) of your monitor, power supply, how much RAM, etc. and buy/build accordingly. There are also pragmatic considerations such as the number and nature of expansion slots: will a gfx card (that may have an onboard fan) fit in the box among other cards? You get the point.

Finally, like CPU speed, number of cores, and amount of RAM, many embrace a bigger-is-better philosophy that just does not manifest itself in most computing. As a start in your decision-making process, you might consider this article which addresses gfx card RAM issues.

Hope this helps.

I didnt know that he was using a pentium D processor. That won't be able to run newer games would it? I thought the old Pentium D's were slow
Anyway, the GT220 is a good choice for this. It's cheap and it runs newer games smooth.
The OP should eventually upgrade his Ram and Cpu (maybe also motherboard) to get a better gaming experience tho
