Aaahhhhhhhh civ v won't run at all

Fighting the Power
When I try to open civ V I get a black screen then an error message that reads "Civlization V has encountered a problem and needs to close." My specs are:

Windows XP
NVIDA GeForce FX 5200
Intel (R) Celeron (R) CPU 2.53 Ghz
3 gb RAM

What is the problem?
FX 5200 is 7 years old at least! I think it doesn't even have Shader 3.0 support. Also think it would support DX8 at best.
You need a new computer. That thing is ancient.

Well, some people got it to run on a single core, but a pentium4 based celeron will definately struggle :p
And the GF FX series is definately not capable of running civ5. You need at least a GF6000 or HD X1000 series card.

But a new computer is probably a good idea :D
