"Your video card is not supported" Is the message im getting here. i just went out and bought the "gold edition" today, and im not that computer savvy, so i didnt know what my videocard was, and still do not, nor do i know how to get a working videocard. I do not intend to go out and buy a 599 dollar videocard to play a game, so im looking for help on downloads(if thats possible?)? well, erm ill check back

you need a DX8 card that supports texture compression and hardware transforms and lighting.

you need to know your hardware. I can't tell you what type of video card you have.

yep, your video card isn't supported. It's an intergrated part on your motherboard and lacks basic hardware features needed by most modern games to run.

Your only option is to buy a new video card. Basically you need at least an Ati 7000 series card, or a Nvidia Geforce card.

You need a video card, now go play your Xbox.
