you can't play at optimum video settings due to using intergrated graphics. However, I suggest that you apply the latest patch (1.5/1.05) for C&C3. This should resolve a number of issues. To update just run the Control Center and then "update". Note that CC runs when you insert the cd or you can get to it by navigating the start menu on your pc.
