I am trying to install a game called Primal Carnage through steam, but everytime i get in the process of it i get the error message saying that I dont have "shader model 3".

I am not sure what i need. I have tried using a program called 3danalyzer to emulate a new graphics card but that was a failure.

How do i get this game to work for me?

I am running windows xp pro SP3 2002

Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.53 GHz
2.52 GHz, 1.5GB RAM

What other information do you guys need?

Trying to spend as little money as possible.

Probably about your graphics card.And CPU.And RAM.LOL
Minimal requirements 2-core cpu,geforce 8800gt or hd 3850,2gb ram.
your cpu is really old and only 1-core,u miss 2 gb of ram,gpu idont know but i presume will be similiar to rest of your pc specs.
This is a 2012 game and your pc is a little bit of outdated.

Shader model 3.0 is hardware inside the graphics card. Your PC is really old and sol is your graphics card. I believe graphic cards with SM 3.0 were released back in 2004.

Unfortunately your PC is really too old to play games released in the past 5+ years. Much has change in the past 10+ years. If you want to spend as little money as possible, then I simply recommend you do not play the game, that way you spend $0.

If you want to play that game then you need to buy a new computer.
