    You only have 6MB of display memory, and the game says it requires minimum 8 MB. Also system memory required by game is 128MB, and you only have 120 MB. This is a little odd as I would have expected the total to be 128MB (120MB system + 8 MB video, or 122MB system + 6MB video). I assume that your video card is built-in to the mainboard and is using system RAM (trident is common). What you need is to add more memory to run that game. Everything else appears fine. You haven't specified the mainboard make/model so that's about all the info your gonna get for now.
