Default graphic card

I want to play Delta Force Extreme

I went to play and it said I needed a video card that needs (Hardware accelerated Transform & Lighting).

I figured my video card was old and bought a Ge Force 6200 and I cannot get it to run. The tech support people said maybe your Mother board does not accept it.

I dont want to buy a new Motherboard unless it is the only option. My board is about 4 years old it is an Elite group Board:
ECS P4VXASD2 1.0
Bus Clock: 100 megahertz
BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 07.00T 04/02/01

any suggestions on what my best option is.

According to your mobo's manual, it has a 4x AGP slot. The GeForce 6200 is a 4x/8x AGP card.

Maybe the AGP is a 2x/4x slot. If it is, it may not work for you.
