I just bought and installed the new EA game Spore. after installing everything it told me my video card wasnt supported. I currently have an ATI Radeon 8500Dv, which they dont make any more so I cant get any updated drivers. I have the most current ones from 2006. Here's my issue- my computer is also my TV. Therefore I need a new videocard that can play Spore but must have an RF cable input. Trying to search thru specs of this and that has completely fried my brain and left me so upset that i dont know what to do. This is the list of Supported video cards from the Spore website...
NVIDIA GeForce series
FX 5900, FX 5950
6200, 6500, 6600, 6800, 7200, 7300, 7600, 7800, 7900, 7950, 8400, 8500, 8600, 8800
9600, 9800, GTX 260, GTX 280
Intel® Extreme Graphics
GMA 950, GMA X3000, GMA X3100
ATI Radeon™ series
9500, 9600, 9800
X300, X600, X700, X800, X850, X1300, X1600, X1800, X1900, X1950
2400, 2600, 2900
3450, 3650, 3850, 3870,
can one of you geek guru's please tell me if any of these have an rf cable input? if there is no rf coaxial input is there a converter to turn coaxial rf into s video? i noticed a lot of cards have s video ports for line in but the converter would need to be rf in, s video out....do those exist? if i need to post other computer specs to see if i have to upgrade other things in order for my system to run with one of those new video cards, i will. I would prefer the cheapest option (if one even exists) The videocard is the only part of my computer that does not meet Spore requirements.
I'm running Win Xp Pro SP3, Pentium 4, 2.4GHz, 1GB RAM
Any and all help is appreciated!!
