Hello everyone--

I have this computer strictly for gaming, more specifically, the Sims. I previously had the original Sims on this computer, along with many expansion packs.

I uninstalled all of these to install the Sims 2, and one expansion pack. Although less than half of the computer's memory is taken, it's performance is horrible. The game goes sooo slow. I spoke to my friend about this and she recommended getting a better graphics card.

The computer is an IBM NetVista Pentium 3... kinda old, but in great condition (has never had access to internet, so there is no spyware, viruses, etc.)

Is the problem here a graphics card? If so, any recommendations on which one I should buy and how much it would cost to have it installed?

Thanks a lot.
