    Your graphics card is probably to old. This is the best bang for the buck. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102803

    Bollocks, a 8600 can run a fricking screen saver!
    Make sure you have the latest nVidia drivers, as well as any Windows updates.

    HI,

    I did all this & it's still not working & saying that my video card "can't run themes". I'm building my son a pc for his birthday, so I'm just going to give him my video card & buy a new updated video card. Also going to give him my monitor & was thinking of getting the ASUS 16" monitor for myself, does anybody know if these are any good?

    Building Computers is so addictive :rockout:
    Who would've thought that a few months ago I was absolutely terrified :eek:
