Hello coignybze, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

The solution to your graphics issue is most likely to be adding a graphics card to your computer. I am guessing you are using the on-board video and do not have a video card installed in your computer. You need a video card with 128 MB or more to play games. You will not have that with the graphics on the motherboard. The GX260 computer series is outdated and will just barely support Windows 7, but if you want to play games, you will need to upgrade it or replace it.

Cheers!
Robert
