can you give any more information on the pc?

if you press the windows key and 'break' key at the same time you will get a list of your system specs such as processor etc.

Also here is a list of the minimum and recommended requirements for playing the game - compare this against your details it also shows you compatible graphics cards:

you just need to find out whether your pc will need an agp or pci graphics card then too. Not too sure how old your pc is

was tempted to just go for the dell xps one system on here yesterday

Crappest game "ever".

I would assume the motherboard has a AGP slot which means it will cost you more now adays to buy a GFXs card for it "unlucky".
