Buy a graphic card
I would like to buy a new graphic card for my system.
I have a M748MLRT System Board, from PCChips, it has a Built-in Graphic System and shares from 2Mb to 8Mb of the RAM. This is why I'd like to change that, because when I want to play a game (3d) the graphics are really slow, the resolution is great, for static 3d graphics but when it comes to motion it fails. Sometimes even minimizing a windows takes like 3 seconds to be viewed, specially if I have 3 or more programs opened.
Acording to my users manual, I can attach a new modem or a new sound card simply setting some jumpers to dissable the built-in feature, but it doesn't say anything about attaching a graphic card and how to dissable the built-in graphics system.
I've tried to contac the manufacturer's tech support but no answer have been recived.
- Do you think installing a new graphic card will resolve my problem?
- What card do you suggest is the best for this purpose?
- What other options do you think I have?
note: I still use Windows98.

I'm going to assume you have a PCI port available and not an AGP.
Is this correct?

I'm sure the PCI port is available, the system board has one ISA and One PCI and the manual says that I only can use one at the time.
There was something about AGP, but I can't remember well.
The PCI is available, that's for sure.
