You've included the dxdiag executable instead of a dxdiag.txt

fixed, my bad
dxdiag.txt is now attached

Your card drivers seem to be really old. Try using this to update them

The drivers are old but are the latest. Like I said it's an old card, but it was top of the line back in it's day. It plays the dayz mod with decent framerates.

We are very sorry, but your graphics card is not supported. Try to run Dayz only on NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT, AMD Radeon HD 3830, Intel HD Graphics 4000 with 512 MB VRAM or higher.
