yes or it might not be sufficient with only 128mb of ram, what is the make and model ?

check in device manager or system information ?

Operating System Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600

The system requirements for that game only require: Graphics Card - GeForce4 MX440 64Mb.

As ickymay requested what is the make and model of your card and what driver are you using?

Windows 7 Ultimate x64.

Unless you have aero turned off it looks like your graphics chip does not even support running that so it is very doubtful it will run any game, besides chess.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Im not familiar w/that game, but some older games such as;
Beyond Good and Evil for example

Run perfectly fine under 7, but ALWAYS say your graphics are out of date.
For some reason they do not recognize the card,and automatically assume its out of date.

IF this is the case for your game, its safe to ignore it and move on. It will not effect the game.

If its a newer game, chances are you indeed do need to update drivers and possibly DX
