Hello Everyone

Im deciding to upgrade my graphic card because recently i have purchased two games and i can't play any of these games. First game i want to play is GTA IV and the other game Prince of Persia (the new one). Both games won't open on my system because of my graphic card. Any recommendations? The Error i get while trying to open the game Prince of Persia is that my video card doesnt support a shader model 3.0

My budget is around 200-300$ CA (CANADIAN DOLLAR). I was also wondering how much would it cost to upgrade my Ram from 1 GB to 2 GB? I wouldnt mind upgrading my whole system soon.

My System Info:
Intel® Pentium® 4 CPU 3.00 GHz
1 GB Ram
ATI 9600 Graphic Card

System requirements for both of these games is minimum Core2duo. I don't see P4 listed. Does the box state the system requirements and does it say that P4 is supported? If not, you need to build a new computer, or return the games.

And also, does your mother board support PCI-E. And what type of ram do you have in there currently. The module, and name of the brand.
