Well...your problem is your computer doesnt meet with the minimal system requirements for it to play.

Like rob said, bioshock is a very demanding game, and if you dont have a top notch pc you wont get it to run.

It ran on mine with no probs at all, even had all the settings cranked up a bit for extra wow factor. But, then again, thats why my PC is worth more than everything else in my house put together, lol.

BioShock Will run fine on Shader 2.0 and 2.0b Vid Cards Just Fine, with a little Tweaking.

It ran fine on full settings(Less Directx 10 mOdels of Course) on my pentium D 820 1 gig Ram, and An ATI x700pro. I've Recently Upgraded to an ATI HD 2600Pro, which I have to Say makes the Game look Stunning With Directx 10!

Check out http://www.paolofranchini.com/shshock/index.php for Details.

Hope That Helps Smile

I hate ATi, I've always been an Nvidia kinda guy myself.
I'm currently running the GeForce 8800 GPU:

I have this graphics card in mine...http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/GeForce-FX-5500-128MB-DDR-PCI-Video-Card-128P1N320LX/sem/rpsm/oid/194296/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do. Not that great i know but its the second best on i can buy. Best one i could have for my comp is the Geforce FX 5700, but thats not to great either...just got to build my own here when i can get the money for a new one (hard at 15..)

The GeForce 5 series were a good solid range of cards, never had any probs with any of them. Before I upgraded I had a GeForce FX 5200, so I know how you feel Darth. The card you have is still a decent card, it's just a little old these days, what with the series 6,7 and 8 cards now available from Nvidia.

You should get yourself a nice 7200 or 7600, great spec, decent price mid range graphics card. Should serve most of your needs. My mate has a 7600GT and he can run FEAR at 1280x1024 with all the graphics settings on full with no problem at all. He even sent me a pic to prove it, so I've attached it for you.

Anyway, let us know if you upgrade! Very Happy
