I have just purchased Age Of Empires 3 and it says I will not be running at the best performance with my current system, given the driver I have. I have a VIA/S3G Unichrome IGP driver on an XP system. I am having a heck of a time figuring out what to do next, despite visiting the VIA website. Anyone have advice about this? Much appreciated!

Well, that is an extremely mediocre video card. Do you have the latest drivers? If so, you probably just need a new video card, which will mean a new PC if you have no PCI-e/AGP slot.

I couldn't find any drivers for it, which means VIA probably dosen't support it. Compaq might, as it's an IGP chip. However, I think you're outta luck. If you want to do any gameing on it, stick to games made before 2002.

Chances are you most likely will not be playing Age 3 on your PC unless you buy a competely new card.

If you like s3 for some reason, then you might want to consider buying Chrome s27. http://gamesnewsupdate.blogspot.com/2005/11/s3-launch-next-gen-gpu.html
