    Your graphics card is a budget card from the stone age, I can't soften it any more than that for you, the term to describe cards like that is "spreadsheet optimized".

    xepha's right. you'll probably have to play it at 800x600 with the system configured for performance (not eye candy) with that card.

    Drop World and Texture Detail to 1 set your screen res to 800x600 and then get hold of the UT3 Tweaker program and use the Best performance settings.

    UT3 Tweakers -> http://utforums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=592757

    Oh, and you should have a read through and apply some of Ultron's tweaks : http://utforums.epicgames.com/showthread.php?t=586697

    Also, try: http://www.tweakguides.com/UT3_1.html and just for the hell of it: http://www.tweakguides.com/NVFORCE_1.html

    Hope that helps enough for you to not have to splash out on hardware upgrades!

    Sadly the quoted specs for this game bear little relation to reality.

    It's a graphics setting in the UT3 video options. Go there, turn World and Texture Detail to 1 and try again. If it still isn't playable, you need to get a new card (or even a new rig). :P

    it hardly can be called a graphics card. here i found a review for you. Its in german, but pictures are self explanatory. It ended last and with single-digit framerates even when compared to previous generation cards on previous generation games. Todays games are twice as demanding and todays cards are twice as fast. So..
