Try updating your video drivers. GeForce 8 and later hardware is capable of OpenGL 3.3 (any hardware which supports DirectX 10 should be physically capable of supporting OpenGL 3.3). The GeForce 9 series was released in 2008 but OpenGL 3.3 wasn't published until 2011, so it won't be supported by older versions of the drivers.

Also, if you have a system with dual GPUs (i.e. Intel integrated graphics plus a dedicated GPU), ensure that the game isn't trying to use the Intel graphics (that's often the default on laptops/notebooks due to lower power consumption).
