I have integrated graphics too man.If you make sure you have no adware,viruses,do a disk cleanup,and defragment your harddrive on a regular basis cause with integrated graphics even a little bit of clutter will make games run really bad.Run the game on low settings and you should be alright.

here's a list of cards from 75 bucks on down http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...TTR17=&ATTR18=
you say your 14 find some odd jobs earn the money yourself then your parents won't say anything about it because the longer you keep nagging your parents for the money or parts the longer you will go without the card

ya you will, all gamers do it when they get new hardware.

btw you need a new video card, i suggest you look to make some $ on the side and when you get some buy a new video card.

btw what brand of computer do you have, and its a no-name or custom pre-built then what type of motherboard does it have?

edit: just read your specs, some of the old compaq's don't have agp slots so take off teh side of yoru case and check (the warranty is probably void by now anyways).

Its a Compaq Presario S5000V and It has PCI slots, and I don't know the Motherboard because its a prebuilt

and I can't buy it myself because my parents say if i Did buy it and i was mad at my brother's they think i would go and grab the Gfx card out of the Computer soo they said they need to buy it so that doesn't happen

Anyway i got $122 but im not gonna spend it on a Gfx card because im gonna buy a PSP when i get enough

AND my parents both got labtops and they said the next computer they gonna buy are laptops...soo If i want a desktop i gotta save up and build my own...AND THEN I'LL SHOW THEM!

This is the Inside of my computer soo..

Don't buy a psp seriously they suck. If you don't take my recommendations on ANYTHING ELSE, take it on this i swear.

Besides, if your comptuer doesn't have an agp slot (you'll need to take the side of the case off and check, it'll be at the top of the slots, shaped differently from the pci slots below) then you'll need a pci video card, which considering your budget, would probably be a good match seeing as they don't make super high end cards for pci due to the bandwidth limits on the bus type.

bingo: this shoudl fit in your budget (assuming the $122 is in us$, these prices are in canadian)
