    Am I having a unlucky streak or something? I just downloaded Prince of Persia, instaled it fine but when it try to run it , it says:
    Your videocard NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420 is not supported.
    Your videocard does not support some required features ( MIN_SIMULTANEOUS_TEX_4 ).
    Your videocard pixel shader version 0000 is below the minimum requirements.
    Your videocard vertex shader version 0000 is below the minimum requirements

    Ok.........so in the readme: It clearly states all nVidia Cards are supported, I have the latest drivers for the graphics card, yet the error message states that the bloody game doesnt even support my game.
    Dues Ex now this..........This is so stupidly wank it's unbelievable
    Anyone have any suggestions?

    You card doesn't support a pixel shader, none of the MX series do which sucks ass. I had to upgrade mine to play some of the new games out (ie. POP, Deus Ex 2, Silent Hill 3, Gladiator SOV). What's next?

    I think it's simply a case of software driving the hardware market. It's only recently I've noticed games have been released that dont support widely used and not always old video cards, forcing .gamers to upgrade.

    An example is Deus Ex where they have used such technology that requires the latest hardware to run and even then it's one of the most demanding games to run .

    Well my MX440 performed much better than my Radeon 9200 that I had to "upgrade" to for the same reasons. I loved that card.

    I feel your pain Iceman. I just recently upgraded from a TNT2 to a MX440 so I could play Vice City. Even if I wanted to upgrade again, I&#39;d first have to replace my motherboard and power supply. That&#39;s why every few years I switch over to console gaming just to get away from all this constantly upgrading the PC bullshit.
