Graphics card for Sims 2

Specs: Windows XP
Wondering if anyone can help me, I've recently brought the Sims 2 Double Deluxe Pack and it came with a couple of expansion packs, but it wont work because it says I havent got a DirectZ 9.0C Compatible graphics adaptor/card.

Now I'm stuck which graphics card is the best to buy and for not a lot of money, because I've got a HP computer and its got a small slot where the graphics card can go.
Please can someone help\

My Specifications for my PC is as follows:

HP 7100
Microsoft Windows XP edition
Version 2002
Service Pack 3
Intel (R)
Pentium (R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
2.79GHz, 504 MB of RAM

Unsure of what graphics card I've got in now, all I know is that its uncompatible with this game

Knowing the exact model would help.

IF, it is this one

Then you have integrated graphics, & there is no AGP socket.
I doubt if you can get a pci graphics card.

UK MP's are thieving scumbags.
EU members are worse.

You need at least 1GB of ram to play the Sims 2. Most Maxis folks will tell you to double that to 2 for the basegame and 3-4 with EPs and SPs. You might upgrade your ram as well to play the game and ensure it runs smoothly.
