Specs: Windows 7, 1.6 GHz / 1789 MB
So I purchased The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim for PC and when I load it, it says that my graphics card doesn't support Shader Model 3. So I need to know some decent graphics cards for computer gaming that are supported on my laptop.

Manufacturer: Acer
Model: Aspire 5515
OS: 32-Bit Windows 7 Ultimate
CPU/Ram: 1.6 GHz / 1789 MB
Video Card: ATI Radeon X1200 Series
Sound Card: High Definition Audio Device

Video card requirements for Skyrim: Direct X 9.0 compliant, video ccard with 512 MB or RAM.

Thanks for any help.

You are truly blind, let us show u the way.
Your laptop is weak and old it can't handle newer games, it can only handle very old games.
Only high end gaming laptop's have an option to change the video card. Yours is stuck on the motherboard and it's not a video card, it called onboard video. U have only one option available and that is to buy a gaming laptop which the starting price is 1000 bucks.

kuwese is correct. You can NOT upgrade the graphics. You need to buy a new laptop. And not a $350 Walmart special, you need to buy a gaming laptop. Either that or play your games on a desktop machine. Of course, the desktop would need to have decent gaming specs.
