I keep getting the message that says "this game does not support your video card. Please refer to the game's minimum system requirements." I got the vendor id and the device id but i don't know what to check.

If you are trying to run this game with a Voodoo card I'm very sad to tell you that it'll never happen. There's tons of features that this game requires on a video card, even if we ignore the necessity of at least a 256mb vga card to run this game, there are other features like Pixel Shader 3.0 and Vertex Shader 3.0.
One of these days I was asking myself "If we can emulate the Shaders 2.0 with 3d-analyzer, why don't we emulate the 3.0??" The answer is obvious, nobody made a program that can emulate that. No 3d-analyze is able to deal with it.
So, if you want to run this game, buy a Geforce or a Radeon Card with Shader 3.0 support like the Geforces 6600 or above, and the Radeon 1650 or above.
I use a Geforce 8600GT here, and the game runs like hell. I do belive that what's "holding" my game performance is my CPU, a Pentium e2160, but, I'll never know until I buy a new one.
Anyway, this game realy rocks, and it worth the money spent to upgrade your pc. Even better, is if you upgrade for a PC to run GTA IV. Mine runs strangely, I'm waiting for a patch to see some fixes. The things that people say around, is that GTA IV is a game made for Next Gen PCs, but, it's kind of weird to hear and a bit unbelievable. I do believe that a Mid end or a Mid-high end PC could do the job at a acceptable graphics settings.
Best regards!
