The problem is, that your SIS 330 only supports up to Direct X. 8.0.

My advice, is to get a good videocard, like Radeon 9600XT. 128mb, 9700Pro. 128mb or 9800Pro 128mb.

This, because most modern videogames, will need Direct X 9.0 to run. And that your card have about the performance of an old Geforce 2 MX videocard.

No DirecX 8 versions will work on XP.
