Default Motherboard Issues

Ok I recently installed a a new motherboard on a computer and it's suppose to have on board video, now I know it prob isn't enough for high end games but for a basic old videogame I thought it would be fine. Well I get a error message when trying to play a game it needs a direct 3d accelerator or something like that, so Im thinking it does need a videocard, but after reading instructions again I notice that it says to insert the paddle card DCCFX-P2 into the PEX16_2 SLOT which is reserved for graphics or video cards. by doing so into this slot it will make the pex16_1 run with x16 speed, now i'm confused is this little paddle that looks like ram for a laptop gonna help me with the video or does it still need a card and thats just for dual cards since it's a crossfire X board for video
