    in future

    go here to make 100%.your pc can run the game

    select a game from dropdown list and scan

    http://cyri.systemrequirementslab.com/srtest/

    it scans your pc to see if it can run the game.

    always do this before buying a game

    if it barely passes the test then the game still might run slowly.

    you want it to pass easily

    this is also just a guide. you must check the recommended requirements against your pc

    also the site above will list your graphics card

    or

    you can try updating the graphics adapter

    to update video driver. xp

    right click on empty part of desktop. then click on properties.

    then settings then advanced.

    then click on adapter (this is your graphics card or chip)

    make a note if it and then go to the manufacturer site such as ati or nvidia etc.

    search for model number and download driver and install it.

    game requirements.

    Minimum System Requirements

    OS: Windows XP or 2000

    )

    System Requirements for full detail level on 1280x1024

    Note: You might be able to play on full detail level and 1280x1024 with slightly lower requirements.

    if you need to upgrade graphics card. i would get the radeon hd4670 £50 or $50

    this will run all older games on high settings.and new games on mid settings.

    more powerfull cards require a 400w or 500w psu.

    also the hd4670 will run on a 300w psu (power supply unit) which most generic shop bought computers have.

    you just plug it in to pcie slot on pc and install the drivers. thats it
