You have a built in graphics "chipset". Built into the mobo. Do you need something special like a driver?

So i do have a video card built in the chipset?

I don't know about the drivers. But i want to play GTA IV on my computer but not sure if it will work.

Edit: In the Display adaptors it says, Intel(R) G41 Express Chipset

that's an integrated graphics chip that will play most of the less graphics intense games at reasonable settings, but will not play GTA 4 at any kind of usable framerate even at the lowest settings. On the other hand, GTA San Andreas would work very well if you like that game..
