Default Video Card problem/question.

I was going to try a new game today and I recieved this message. "Failed to initialize Direct X 3D: Video Card does not support filtering and blending of floating point render textures." I have a NVIDIA Geforce 6100 video card and i'm pretty sure it supports 3d graphics. Is there something I can do to fix it or will the video card not work?

Does the game state that it supports the GeForce 6100 series or dose it start with a higher series?

It could be that your card supports 3D rendering but not 3D output or 3D Direct Draw. They are all different things.

Ok. It says to use at least Nvidia Geforce 7600/ATI Radeon X1300. I just figured that those were suggestions. It says at least 128 Mb 3D Video Card w/ Shader Model 3.0 support. I thought it fit the requirements but it obviously doesn't.
