    Well, it is true that that card is a little..... out of date. However it should still be enough to at least RUN aoe3. Minimum requirements are a 64Mb directx 8.0 compatible card. You have a 128mb directx 9.0 compatible.

    Have you tried the latest drivers for it? Go here: http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp
    and download the latest geforce graphics driver for your system.

    If that doesn't work, then give us your complete system stats.

    Good luck!
