    if it said on the box geforce 3 and you knew you only had a 2 why did you even buy it. All you can do is wait till you have the money to buy a new video card is my guess

    the answer is probably not - but even if you could the game would run like a dog. It is possible to overclock graphics cards but I doubt it'd be enough to get performance anything like a Geforce 3. I have to agree with Zombie as well - why buy the game if you know you don't have the hardware

    Well,

    The advice you have been given is correct. The manufacturers of the game have put that equipment check in for a reason?

    Not only will the game run very badly and drive you mad, if you got it to run it could easily kill your existing videocard.

    Yes, it should be relatively simple to get round the restriction (well I am sure that I could do it, as I have managed with Microsoft Operating Systems)



    In the case of a video card, don't even try it..............and certainly don't let any of your "clever" friends try it..............remember, it will be you without a working computer, not THEM????

    As for overclocking, I doubt if that would work, as I suspect that the problem is more what graphics features are supported than raw speed?

    Look at it this way, if you cannot afford a new card to play the game, you cannot afford a new card because you have fried the old one?

    Please give it some thought
    If you cannot do someone any good: don't do them any harm....
    As long as you did this to one of these, the least of my little ones............you did it unto Me.
