    Inbuilt or onboard graphics tend to suck pretty hard when it comes to gaming that require a lot of graphical processing power!

    if its a laptop then your probably out of luck as an upgrade most of the time a graphics upgrade isn't possible [​IMG]

    If its a Desktop or Tower unit then suggest getting a proper dedicated graphics card and not using the one that's built into the motherboard!

    do you have a laptop or a desktop/tower??

    if its a desktop machine or a tower and not a laptop you can buy a cheap graphics card and install it yourself [​IMG]

    your specs told me that its a via chipset which is usually onboard (built into the computers motherboard) and not a seperate one these are usually in laptops or in tower/desktops that come as a cheap bundle or pre built package ...
    there are guides on youtube and the net on how to fit graphics cards yourself [​IMG]

    Next time, run 'dxdiag' to check your specs or download CPU-Z and GPU-Z.
