Some help would be appreciated. I already know I don't have a Gaming comp. But I think the integrated Video Card is gonna kill me. But any suggestions, I'm fine with minimum requirements for now.

The integrated graphics are definitely going to be your biggest problem. If you have a PCI Express x16 slot you could upgrade to a HD2600xt or 8600gt for about $50 and definitely be able to play on at least minimum settings. You cpu isn't the fastest either but it should still be able to handle low settings.

Download and run cpuz then post a screen shot of the Mainboard tab.

Yes, this board has a PCI Express slot. You can buy a video card and plug it in. Now it depends on how much you want to spend.

Your motherboard has a PCI Express x16 slot(operating at x4) so you can upgrade your graphics card. A HD2600 Pro should be able to play it fine on at least low settings and at $43 is your cheapest upgrade option.

Newegg.com - VisionTek 900179 Radeon HD 2600PRO 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready CrossFire Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

If you want to spend about $100 the GeForce 8800GS is allot better card but it will be bottlenecked by your cpu and motherboard. It may also require you to upgrade your power supply.

Newegg.com - XFX PVT88SFDFU GeForce 8800GS 384MB 192-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards

Ok I went out and got a ECS GeForce N6600LE

I just installed it in the computer. And When I tried to install the driver it says the the card cannot be found. I then went to my device manager and tried to install it from there and it says...

"Windows found driver software for your device but encountered and error while attempting to install it.

nvidia 6600le

Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"



I have no idea what the problem is. I'm pretty sure the video card is installed properly.

Any help is appreciated.

The card you bought is also very weak and would not give you any good experience in games. You should get one of those that have been suggested.

Would a GeForce 8600 gt be good? I'm looking at one for 100 dollars.
