S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Says Video Card Doesn't Meet Spec?
I recently built my first gaming PC (build is here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2m2xf) and I'm trying to play S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl, an old PC game I was never able to play on a console. However, when I attempt to install, it says that my video card "doesn't meet game's system". Is my GPU too new to run this game? Will I experience issues if I attempt to run this game on my rig?

It's a physical copy, not through Steam. I found it cheap a few years ago, bought it for my home PC, and found out that my computer at the time wasn't up to spec. It's just been sitting in a drawer ever since.

I assume so, my GPU registered normal results when stress testing. Also, in the game setup it does list my GPU (AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series ~-1024MB), but it just highlights it in red and says it doesn't meet the game's system.
