well i went to eb games today and bought counter strike source and dod source. Only problem is that they lagg REALLY REALLY bad when i try to play it. My ping is like 400+ all the time.
What ive heard from some of the people on the other forums i go to is that i need a new graphics card. problem is i dont know ANYTHING about graphic cards; well... maybe that GeForce and ATI are the best ones out.

if you need my system specs i dont know how to get the brands and stuff/model #

I got 1 gig of ram
intel pentium 4 with HT (3.00 gHz)
200GB of storage
and other stuff


so i want to ask you guys, how do i install graphic cards since im a total noob at them

cheers and thx for the help :whistling:

Integrated is the problem they arent designed to play games, youre lucky they play at all. Do you have PCI-E ot AGP on that board, get PC wizard2006 or CPU-Z and find out.

no wonder you cant play it, this laptop has an embedded intel and i can play UT 2004 decently. but not sure bout Source, or any online game, lol. just get a 6600GT or something, but if u can afford get a 7900GT or x1800XT or something good.
