yes it is your video card...that is a onboard video card...u need a beefy one!

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

IGP sucks. Even if it would run it, you would not actually be able to play it. Get a decent budget card. Like the ATI 9800 NP. Won't be great, but better then what you have.

Take care

Man you better go get a vid card! but don't blow too much on it. I have an ATI 9100 that runs it on medium and high settings at 1024*768 with a 1.4 ghz p4. It should be pretty good on your system with a good vid card.

Yeah, it sure sounds like that fan not spinning on the gpu is the problem. I'd simply try to replace the fan or get a new card. Your call.
