Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2

Daniel_109 Guest

I have ordered a new dell computer, its a 2.6 ghz pentium 4 processor with Integrated Intel Extreme Graphics 2, just wondering is this enough to run fs2004 smoothly?

As you know Integrated cards are not the best for maximum FPS but with a good processor like that and lets hope at least 1 gig of ram you should have a very nice system to run it on.
The least you should try with XP is 512mb ram for fair performance, eye candy included.

You would have to add it yourself, or go to a shop to have it done. It's really very easy.
It's hard to say what it would cost.
To get an idea of price, probably the best outside of a local store sale is here.

I priced around on a few website, and i could afford to get 128mb graphics card and 512mb ram, should that run the game alright?

Depending on the card, yes. There are some old not too good 128mb.
If all you can afford right now is 512mb ram that would be great.

If your ordering from dell and are getting 512mb ram get the duel instead of shared it will run a little better.

It depends on what you are using now and if you have a motherboard that can support it.
List your system specs especially what card your using now.
Do you have an AGP socket.

If it is a Dell Dimension 3000 or less, it only has PCI slots.

You can find them but they're older cards and not that good, especially for a graphic intensive sim like ours.
