    Doh! I seriously doubt that card can produce a playable experience with this game. It puts a hit on my 9800 Pro :( If newest drivers don't work for you I suggest looking into another video card.

    You currently have onboard graphics. Does your motherboard have a PCI-E or AGP graphics card slot or neither? Any recommendations would depend on what your motherboard can accommodate.

    Other options require pixel shader (nVidia Ti/FX ; Radeon 9200>+ )
