Just a little post about getting a good graphics card (and or processor) to run AVP3


http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125286

Very good graphics card, will surely run AVP3 on very high settings (at least a decent processor) and if you have a good processor (Quad core) it will probably run it max settings.


First off, you need to know if you have the right slot, in this case, this is a PCIe slot

which looks like dis..

The PCIe (Or PCI express, whatever you want to call it) is the black slot in this picture.

Most modern motherboards have at least one of these, so if you have bought a decent new computer in the last 3 or so years, it's a pretty safe bet you have one, but I would still check. Smile

If you want to look around for any others, go here, it will have the list I used to find this graphics card.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010380048+1069633099+106792522+1068320729&QksAutoSuggestion=&ShowDeactivatedMark=False&Configurator=&Subcategory=48&description=&Ntk=&CFG=&SpeTabStoreType=&srchInDesc=


It is also important that you have a decent Power Supply Unit (or PSU) it has to have certain wattage to power the video card, if you open up your computer, and try to look under the power supply, it may tell you how many watts it pumps out, (e.g 450-Watts)

A power supply looks like this

REMEMBER! CHECK THE WATTAGE YOUR CARD NEEDS AND HOW MUCH WATTAGE YOUR POWER SUPPLY PUTS OUT! IF YOUR CARD DOESN'T HAVE SUFFICIENT WATTAGE, IT WILL NOT WORK



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


If you need a processor, there is also a certain socket is has to be in, not every CPU uses the same socket. If you look up your processor, it will tell you which socket it uses, so you know the right processor to buy (e.g socket AM2+, Socket M, Socket AM2)

It is also very important to apply thermal grease on top of the CPU before you put the fan back on, thermal grease conducts heat and transfers it to a heat sink (Which is a device that dissipates heat)

You can get Thermal grease pretty much at any hardware store (example; Radioshack)

If you need any more help, you can PM me or email me.

...if you buy a cpu from retail it comes with the heatsink and thermal paste.

you can also use everest ultimate edition to help find out what socket you have.

Well, the minimum is a 2.13 Dual Core processor, but I would recommend a Quad core really.
