Exclamation Amnesia not working

I know that several people have already posted this issue, however i've tried the solutions given by other users and nothing seems to work so i was wandering if anyone could tell me whether my video card is good enough for this game or not.
I have nvidia quadro fx 3000, i now that it's not the best card ever, however im able to play world of warcraft perfectly, and i read something in a post about checking the Hpl file and check the version, if it was 2.1.0 or higher, then it should work, and in my log says 2.1.2 so i thought it was good enough, but i just cant launch the game D:

"Error!
Not enough drawbuffers supported! Please make sure your graphic card drivers are up to date."



oh btw, i have already turned off the ssao and tried the crapiest settings for the game

No idea whats going on, perhaps the video card just isnt good enough? . The "Quadro" series video cards arent really desigend for gaming, they have a different architecture, they are workstation cards for 3D work etc, but they perform weak with games. The gaming cards for Nvidia are the "geforce" series.

Thanks for the reply, i was wandering whether it was worth upgrading my video card or not, it seems my computer isnt compatible with many good cards, for not saying decent at least. I mean, the computer's potential isn't really worth buying another card right? It would be better to just buy a new computer i believe hahah

Well that depends on the rest of your specs. Whats your Motherboard/ Processor/ RAM/ Power Supply watt?

Well, i don't know that, i only know that my computer uses AGP video cards, and i know that really doesn't leave many choices
