    the card does'nt have enuf memory to play the game.I guess u have onboard intel extreme graphics which can play most games with decent framerates with moderate or low graphics settings.plese give more details on yor mobo.

    even i can play nfsmw on my onboard prosavage ddr chipset with lowest settings at dissapointing frame rates.

    Its because either you have a Intel Grafics Memory accelarator onboard if you hve a 9XX series mobo or Intel Extreme graphics or EG2 if you have an Intel 8XX series mobo both are more powerful then TNT gfx card and moreover many of these games do not support TNT cards at all so u r better off with onboard gfx here

    The graphics card is just not enough...u should be atleast having a 6200 or higher..for playing all games.
