Your computer was sold with an Intel integrated graphics card, which isn't capable of running the game. You need to upgrade your graphics card.

Or just save up your money and buy a new pc in 6months or less. (do this if you are interested in playing any of the new games that are graphically intensive).

crummy. i just bought this computer like 6 months ago and the future shop guy said this will play any new game for years to come.guess i am the sucker who paid his commision. i guess this isnt a game playing computer than.i guess i will have to stick with stacraft from 97 lol. how expensive around would a new video card plus intsallation run me do you think?i mean all said and done are we talking under 100 under 500 or like a grand to do it all?tnx
LOL it wont play games now or years to come because you dont have an expansion slot at all for a good video card.
Your pc only has regular old pci which is crummy for video cards but some work okay..
Onboard video sucks for any new game. Wont even run most of the newer games.
Just get a regular pci video card you should be able to find one that will play the games you want to but you wont be able to play them on high settings or anything with a regular pci video card.
Look at a pci fx 5500 or the fx 5500 oc version.
**Has to be Regular PCI** "PCI" not pci express. With the model number you gave I looked on sites it doesnt have any expansion slots but pci.
So get a video card like the 5500 or get a motherboard that supports your current cpu and memory then just get a good quality video card.
The thing is you might run into problems when using a manufacturers case with a new motherboard. More than likely it wont work
So your only options are
1. get a pci video card (the newer games wont play real great but you could atleast be able to play them on low or a hair higher).
2. Get a new case, motherboard, and video card and use all the current hardware to install on it. Might as well buy a new powersupply to with more power to accomidate a better video card.
All of the parts I listed above vary in price from cheap to expensive. Just those parts wont be that much.
Quick estimates depending on what you pick out. Case -$75, Motherboard -$90 (you can get a cheaper one or more expensive up to you) Video card -$180 Minimum for a high quality video card to play the game nicely.. again its up to you... Power supply -$60-$88 depending on what you choose.
3. Get a new pc and make shure you have pci express available on the motherboard so you can put a sweet video card in it. Remember from now on, dont buy a pc unless it has Pci express 16X for the video card slot!!
Agp is still fine but its older but its way better than a regular pci video card.
Hope this helps

The manufactured pc's are not really meant for gaming but some are and you can upgrade the video card in them also.
There is plenty of custom pc companies on the net that will put everything together and you pick out whatever parts they have to choose from.
