I need to get back to it again. My computer needs a video card to play it well though, I'm running on the graphics in my AMD processor. I didn't build my computer to play things like this.

Microsoft turned off some older AMD "on-a-chip" radeon 3000 gpu's with their latest update. The drivers were abandoned by AMD and they didn't meet the quality requirements of Microsoft.The new guidelines also claim that every new computer now needs 8 Gigabytes of memory to be windows 10-certified. So much for "640 kilobyte should be enough for everyone" :gg:
Check out the "Radeon RX 480" (or something close to that) type of gpu's they're not expensive and have a powerful DirectX 12 processor. Purrhaps prices will drop after christmas :hmm:

Please don't. The card only supports 8 "lanes" of the 16 possible PCI-E lanes and is thus transfering data with 50% less speed than possible! Transferrign data from computer mamory into graphics memory is one of the most important jobs of a video card.

You can see that the golden contacts on the plug end in the middle of the broader part of the connector. This is where your bits flow through. No golden contacts, no data flow. :pif:
