    Intel 82865

    I Bought a Computer From Dell and It has onboard intel 82865 graphics controller capable of 128mb shared memory.
    I Was Wondering if this Video Card Good Enough To Play Most Shooter Games
    Like "Halo" & "Unreal Tournament 2003/2004 " & "Call Of Duty" Etc...
    BTW: IF the above Video not Good :

    & Please Keep in mind That my PC has only(PCI Slot Not AGP)
    1)VisionTek Xtasy Readon 9100 128MB DDR PCI with DVI-D video card (OEM)
    2)XFX 5200 128MB DDR TV out PCI
    3)Maddog Fx 5200 DDR 128MB PCI
    4)Nividia Geforce FX 5200 128MB TV out

    Likely you would have to play at very low resolutions, even for older games like Quake3. I doubt Call of Duty will even run as it seems to need some DX8 features (or a Transormation and Lighting engine) as it says my TNT2 Ultra on my 5th computer will not run it (I do LAN parties and wanted to run CoD instead of RtCW:ET). My TNT2 has a similar feature set, but likely runs about 3 times faster.

    As for a graphics card, you should stay away from the GeForceFX5200 as the non-Ultras have only a 64 bit memory bus (half the regular speed) and even the FX 5200 Ultra sucks pretty bad.

    For the money a Geforce4 MX440 with 64MB DDR will do you good. You can grab it for $54 here:

    A Radeon 9000 is not too bad at $72 here:

    http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...2&searchdepa=1

    The memory is only clocked at 400Mhz, but the Radeon 9200SE has only a 64 bit bus.

    I did find a Radeon 9100 Pro with 64MB DDR for only $49 (off PriceWatch) here:

    http://www.shentech.com/vixt91ra91pr.html

    I have never heard of the company, but the radeon 9100 does have the full 250/500 core memory and would likely be your best performer. A quick seach showed it for $55 and $65 at 2 other venders off PriceWatch.

    A quick check on VisionTek's website showed a good list of retail stores that carry their card. I found Tiger Direct had the non Pro version of the Radeon 9100 PCI with 128MB DDR for only $49 after rebate here:

    I don't think that Intel chipset supports DX8.0 or any T&L, so you might find a few games it just cant run. Also from what I have seen Intel tends to have lots of bug in their drivers and rarely updates them. I remember a friend of mine had a P3 850 that he thought could take on my Duron 600@900, but he did not know what graphics he had in his $1700 computer. I gave him a disc full of downloaded 3D demos and he could only run about half of them. It turned out he had an I810 chipset. My Voodoo3 2000@166Mhz was about 20 times faster than his system. Even at 640x480 he was barely able to run at 15FPS.

    Your going to find that even if you can run Call of Duty (a great game) you will have to run at so low of a resolution, you will have trouble spotting people more than about 50 feet away at best. You will be at a destinct disadvantage. I had enough trouble on my laptop. The game does not use the same setting in MP as SP and it was at the default 640x480 on my laptop. I have a GeForce4 Go420 (not the best, but MUCH better than integrated). I got my but wipped by my brother as he liked sniping I could not see him. I started just running around like made jumping until I say a few muzzle flashes and hoped I could get close enough to shoot him with my machine gun. I played again online at 800x600 and it was better, but nothing like my main system does.
