Don't bother with the installation. You have to buy a new video card first. On the bottom of the box you will see it says that MX400 cards are not supported by this game. Sorry!

This must be the 10th thread having to do w/graphics cards... But anyway spud, I'd recommend purchasing an nVidia Geforce 6600GT. Great card... will last you 2 to 3 years. Best buy for your buck since its only 'bout 200$. Hark will tell you the exact same thing... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

P.S. Don't expect to get a worthwhile card for under 100$. The MX series cost about 60-70$ and it was absolute trash

The MX440 isn't supported.

Yeah the cheapest bang for your buck would be the 6600GT, however if possible Id recommend the 6800 GT or ultra if you have the cash. If you can't afford any of the above got with a Geforce 4 Ti-4600, while not a DX9 card it still has more raw power than many of the newer cards.

6600GT - 199.99
6800GT - 300.00
6800Ultra - 400
