That should be plenty to run BFG.

What driver version do you have? What driver version did you try upgrading to? Are you on laptop?

Can you run dxdiag and create report to post it here?

I believe the 260 only supports OpenGL 3.1, while BFG requires a minimum of 3.2 to run.

GF 260 is newer than 9xxx series, and BFG runs on GF 9500. And the owner of 9500 simply updated drivers to make it happen (as I recall the conversation).

Ah i forgot that driver updates can add newer OpenGL versions.
