I just downloaded the personal edition of Maya and when I opened it up it said:

"Your graphics card doesn't support hardware rendering. Pixel shading extensions insufficient."

I have the basic intergrated intel graphics card because I never really needed anything that fancy until now. I was just wondering what would be the minimum kind of graphics card that could run Maya... something not that expensive because I don't have that much money right now. lol

I read on the Maya homepage that I needed a " Hardware-Accelerated OpenGL® graphics card" but I really don't know what that is.

Any help would be great. Thanks!

HI. Google is a great way to get information such as this. I did a search for " Hardware-Accelerated OpenGL® graphics card" and found multiple hits. Take a look at this http://www.dvxuser.c...hp/t-29752.html
There are multiple hits. Do your own search if this one does not answer your question.
