I've had my lovely mac for a couple of years but I am by no means an expert....

I've recently bought the game Age of Empires III and was really excited about playing it... until I realised I didn't have the right spec

According to my system I only have 32mb of VRAM were as 62mb is required to play. I understand this as some kind of video card? I've searched the net to find an upgrade but can't find anything specific to macs... can anyone point me in the right direction?

To help, we would have to know (at least) what type of Mac you have.

If you have an iMac, eMac, or any kind of Apple Laptop there is nothing you can do. If you have a PowerMac, you can buy a new video card for it. Since every time Apple releases a new PowerMac there is a new video card interface we will need to know what computer you have.

I have an emac 1.25Ghz 10.3 ... this is not looking good.

Do you then think the best thing to do is sell the game?!

Well you can try it, it might be able to run with the graphics settings turned down. If not then that's all you can do.
