I recently installed the Sims 3 to my Dell Dimension 4600 with Windows XP. I have not bought anything else to upgrade my video card. Every time I go to play The Sims 3 I get this message:
"Device 0 cannot run this title. Your video card does not appear to support at least Shader Model 2. Please upgrade your card."

You need to upgrade your video card to one that supports shader model 2. As that's an old AGP slotted system that may not be such an easy task.
