(Apologies if this is a duplicate post. I thought I’d posted a similar question yesterday but cannot find it today.)
In the past, I’ve used a home-built desktop system that included a GEForce 9500T graphics card. That system has died due to unknown causes. I’m trying to resurrect it instead of buying a new system because retirement income doesn’t stretch to a new one.
I think the problem with my system is a failed motherboard (mobo). It might also be that the graphics card has died. I suppose that it’s also possible that my Intel Core i5 CPU died. I won’t know until I start replacing parts. I’ve checked the power supply and it’s OK. I’m pretty sure that the disk drives and SSHD are OK.
I’m reading that today’s mobos offer native video graphics support adequate to ‘most’ tasks meaning that most folks do not need to buy a graphics card, which leads up to my question. If the GEForce graphics card proves to be bad as well as the mobo, is there a mobo with onboard graphics capability that will drive SketchUp? I will need an LGA 1155 ATX (not micro or extended) with 4 DDR3 RAM slots.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions and help on this problem.
