When I load up halo, it gives me a "fatal error" message saying that "A problem occured initializing DirectDraw. Hardware acceleration may be disabled, please run DXDIAG". I did run DXDIAG, but how do you enable hardware acceleration?

ok, this might be simple but it depends on what you do.. me and my friend went through this problem and it was simply because his graphics card wasnt installed, go to whatever file u keep your installer in and make sure ur graphics card is working properly, one case was that sometimes you computer doesnt read that its there, for this sometimes rebooting your computer works, another thing you can try is to reinstall or get the newest directx.. there are many different ways to enable directdraw but if anyone of these suggestions dont help just go and google it.. "A problem occured initializing DirectDraw. Hardware acceleration may be disabled, please run DXDIAG/halo"................ hope this helps

Ahh.... it seems I haven't got a graphic card.

That was very helpful man, thanks. Any suggestions on a good graphic card?

Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS graphics card

The 8800 GTX introduced us to unified shaders - or Stream Processors, as Nvidia likes to call them - and the GTS has also been cut back in this department. The GTX has 128 SPs running at 1,350MHz while the GTS has 96 running at 1,200MHz.

The final change comes in the Raster Operation Units (ROPs) which are cut from six in the GTX to five in the GTS. Each ROP can render four pixels so this is the equivalent of cutting back from 24 old-style ROPs to 20 ROPs, which is consistent with the other changes. The GeForce 8800 GTS hasn't been crippled but it is certainly hobbled compared to the GTX.

On the bright side, these changes mean that Nvidia recommends that you install a 450W power supply for a single GTX graphics card while a GTS only requires a 400W unit, and of course the GTS is quite a bit cheaper than the GTX. Now we're not going to sneeze at a £100 saving as it's 20 percent of the price of a GTX.

Well I thought about that but it's a good $500! I might as well buy another X360!

I've settled for NVIDIA GeForce 7400. And I have DirectX 10 so there we go.
