I downloaded Lego Batman 2, but when I try to play the game it gives me an error message that says something like, "Unable to play game, you need a video card that supports Shader Model 3. Closing game." I just bought a new processor, the AMD A10 APU, so it has the CPU+GPU in it. Is there any way around this error or will I have to buy a graphics card now too?

Which A10 do you have? I have the 5800k but no matter which version you have, the on chip Radeon is more than capable of playing the latest games. So don't splash out on a new card.

However I am finding a few apps are not recognizing my card, but Diablo 3 works fine, Saints Row 3 etc... so I'm guessing is a driver issue or these apps need updating to recognise these rather new APU's...

Not much of solution sorry but this needed a reply!
