I recently got a PC. You may have read my other thread.
(it was free. Other specs good except the video card. It didn't have one.
Only 32 megs on integrated video. Yuck.

So then I went and bought a 50 dollar video card with 256. Runs great.
My friend helped me install it.

I installed the driver that came with it.

Here's a link to the actual card.

It supports DirectX9 so I can't image it's too "old" for Halo and other slightly older games. ;)

When I launch Halo however, it starts to go, but then tells me that is sees the card, but can't start up DirectX 3DDraw. or something. It says Hardware Acceleration may be off.

I ran the dxdiag program from the run menu and Hardware Acceleration IS ON.

Any ideas? I am baffled and a little ticked off my (expensive for me) video card isn't doing what I want it to. *big surprise*
