The game requires Pixel Shader 2.0 to run. Your video card is very dated and lacks this technology. You need a new video card to run the game; any DirectX 9.0 capable card should work.

The age of your video card suggests you might have an equally old motherboard, however, which may not be compatible with a lot of more recent video cards, so I can't suggest one (though you can get a fitting one fairly cheap).
