Battlefield 3 - directx

I have just installed Battlefield 3. When I try to run it, mycomputer omes up with the following error message:

Failed creating D3D device of at least version 10.0 on adapter "" with driver "Unknown", Error is DXGI_ERROR_UNSUPPORTED ("Unsupported").

This is typically caused by not having the minimum required DirectX support in GPU.
For NVIDIA GPU's 10.0 is required
For AMD and GPU's from other vendors, DirectX 10.1 is required.

I am currently running Directx 11. on vista
I have an Advent QC6003 INtel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33Ghz (4CPUs) with 6MB ram
Drivers for the onboard Intel(R)G45/G43 Express Chipset is igdumd64.dll, igd10umd64.dll version 7.15

What am I doing wrong?
Why can't I run Battlefield 3?

Please help.

  1. Technically you are not doing anything wrong but the video card you have will not run that game. If you have a 300 watt CPU at least, get a Radeon 6770 card, then you can play.

    Many thanks for that. Just been looing online at prices. Is the Radeon HD 6570 - 2 GB GDDR3 - PCI-Express 2.1 not better as its cheaper and has 2GB?

    Cheers
  3. Amount of RAM does not tell you how fast the card it. If you want a cheaper video card get a 5670 or a 6670. The 6770 will be better than any of these though, but you need a more powerful power supply to run it. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-graphics-card-review,3107-3.html
