Hi tom2badcat, the SIMS game is very picky when it comes to graphics cards. If you look on the SIMS box you'll find their recomended graphics card list. The video card you bought is a low end 8x AGP card. You can try downloading & installing directx 9.0c from microsoft. Click on this link;

If directx 9.0c still fails to install the graphics card is at fault & you should return it. Listed below is a link. The link provides a couple 8x AGP graphics cards that will run both directx 9.0c & the SIMS expansion pack 2. (The graphic cards shown all use faster memory).
XFX cards carry a lifetime warranty. (No# Choice)

Below is a whole list of 8x AGP cards.

Brief Description:

The Microsoft DirectX® End-User Runtime provides updates to 9.0c and previous versions of DirectX — the core Windows® technology that drives high-speed multimedia and games on the PC.

About graphic card


most top-end cards will work with your computer and boost performance a bit but... your CPU and the (these days) very low amount of RAM (for e.g. this little laptop I'm using has 3 GIG of ram) would NOT enable you to play the (latest) games... if you got them to run at all they would be mind-numbingly slow.

Biggest performance boost you could give your computer and help towards playing latest games would be more RAM.. as much as you can fit in. More RAM is the best upgrade you can give a computer

It is not possible to upgrade graphics in the D620. The GPU is integrated onto the mainboard, so the only way to change GPU is to change the mainboard.

Do you have the latest version of direct x installed? Direct x sometimes can cause problems with games using 3d acceleration, as some versions of direct x are not fully compatible with the video card and/or the video card drivers.
