    :dead: the game demo i have says it must have 32 MB Nvidia Geforce 1,2,3,4, or FX - ATI Radeon 7000-9800 or better. i have Nvidia Vanta/LT and the 7. version so it's the latest driver for that. is it "better" or have i wasted ordering the game before playing the download? please someone help me.

    sorry.. your graphics card does not meet the minimum requirements for the game


    a vanta is basically a tnt/2 card (lower end), previous generation than the geforce256

    The vanta is around 10 years old and won't run any games made after 2001.

    Like everyone has mentioned your card is obsolete for todays games. Since your running agp I assume and you probably donot want to upgrade to a new pc. I think this card might fit your need.
    Radeon HD 3650 512MB $79.99
    DirectX 10.1, HDMI out and HD AVIVO for AGP

    Thats as good as its going to get for your setup.

    I think the vanta is the first rev AGP and the new cards will not run on that slot ... would need to know the motherboard make and model before buying anything
