    If you have a non-T&L capable video card (an Intel Extreme Graphics or a Radeon 7000/VE Series) then you need at least:

    2.0 GHz processor or better
    256 MB RAM if Windows Vista, XP, Windows ME, Windows 98, or Windows 2000
    At least 3.5 GB of hard drive space

    This doesn't mean that your "SiS mirage 3 graphics" will work or not.
    You are best to confirm your graphics card drivers are up to date, from your Manufactures Driver Support page

    For any further help please put your System Specs information in your Profile
