    GTA San Andreas not working in windows 7? Will it work with new Graphics Card?

    I am a big fan of famous computer game “GTA San Andreas” so I installed this game in my computer which has windows 7 installed but It failed to open. Initially I thought that the product is faulty but the dealer told me that your computer must have a Graphics card in order to play such games. So please suggest me a Graphics card which can play this game in my computer.

    Re: GTA San Andreas not working in windows 7? Will it work with new Graphics Card?

    Yes, the dealer said exactly correct. Actually GTA San Andreas is a game which needs a Graphics card. Now a days laptop and PC comes with In built Graphics card so this game run effectively without adding any external Graphics card and people think that the game worked without Graphics card. First of all I will suggest you to check whether you have an in built graphics card or not. If it is already present then you will need to install driver for your graphics card in order to get it working but In case your computer doesn’t have any Graphics card then you will need to insert a Graphics card but before purchasing any Graphics card, check the slot and also the compatibility according to your motherboard as every motherboard might not support every kind of Graphics card. Here you haven’t provided information about your motherboard so it would be difficult to suggest you any graphics card but the one from Nvidia is considered best.

    dear friend,

    actually GTA san andreas is a game with required high graphics quality.

    you have to set up a graphics card if you want to play the game.

    1gb nvidia graphics card would be enough for that.

    all the best.

    Re: GTA San Andreas not working in windows 7? Will it work with new Graphics Card?

    Hey Dear...

    As you didn't mention which part or which version you are playing you are playing, so its not possible to suggest you which Graphic Card you can use.

    As GTA San Andreas and and GTA Vice City don't need any graphic card, so there is no need to install it but if you are playing the upgraded version of GTA or you want to play the High Graphic Card game, then i suggest you to purchase the NVIDIA Get Force 512 or 1GB Graphic Card which is sufficient and compatible with all types of games.

    This will cost you around Rs.6500 to Rs.8000.

    Thanks

    Re: GTA San Andreas not working in windows 7? Will it work with new Graphics Card?

    Hiiiiiii
    I am also playing GTA San Andreas in My Computer and I'm not having any additional graphic card and i have just 256mb(Nvidia Geforce 7050) graphics inbuilt.
    game runs smoothly in my pc.check whether you have any inbuilt,as now a days all motherboards are having inbuilt graphics,if there is no graphic card inbuilt,then buy the latest version of graphic card.As Rockstar games released other new exciting games GTA IV and GTA V.these needs a minimum Graphics of 1GB.
    Thank You

    Re: GTA San Andreas not working in windows 7? Will it work with new Graphics Card?

    Hi,
    Any graphic intensive game this days need add on graphic card to run, as the game programs are so heavy resource hungry, heaviest details, fast rendering and multiple frame needs lots of RAM and the system RAM doesnt fullfil their hunger they need specific , dedicated chips and RAM which will be consumed by them ony to perform their task.
    So a graphic card is necessary for playing high graphic games like GTA San Andreas, but card selection is tough and will depend upon the main boards compatibility and you have to discuss that with the card vendor.
    A card with at least 1GB RAM, 2GB will be better, fast refresh rate will do.
    NvIDIA has a number of different choices from which you can choose one.
    Thanks.

    Re: GTA San Andreas not working in windows 7? Will it work with new Graphics Card?

    Hello Friend,


    I will help you to get rid of this problem k,Don't worry.Firstly that game will run without any graphic card in windows xp so try installing windows xp instead of buying the graphic card and more over all latest games needs graphic card when you are using the windows 7 software but any of those games doesn't need such abit graphic card in windows xp k.

    If you only want to run the game in windows 7 then it's best to but a graphic card of Asus or Nvidia what ever you like k.And best to buy 1gb graphic card k it doesn't have a big difference in money in buying the 512mb graphic card and 1gb graphic card k..


    All the best.......................

    Friend dealer said it correct that you will definately need a graphics card to run that game.
    Graphics card are ment to increase the good visibility and also to support dynamic features.
    So check if your laptop does contains graphics card or not, if present then the drivers may not be properly installed.
    Even you can update your Graphics drivers.
    If your lapy does have Graphics card then purchase it but be sure what kind of Graphics card will be compatible with your lapy.

    respected sir,
    there are many type of graphic cards available in the present market but the famous among them are

    2)RADEION
    so choose any one the above graphic cards but my suggestion is to use the nvidia graphic cards because it has better performance then the radeion .

    not only graphic card but to play gta sandreas computer should meet the following requirements
    1)ram should be 512 mb or more than that
    2)processor should be intel pentium 4 or i2 0r i3 or i5 or i7
    3)directX9 compatible sound card

    i hope this will help you
