New Virtual Box issues.

Forums: 

(to clarify, ubuntu is my OS, windows is in my virtual box)
ok new question, I'm new to virtual anything, I'm loving it so far, I have windows 7 64 bit pro, validation worked, updating is working great, installing programs is perfect. Now as a test, I am trying to get fallout new vegas to work.

I'm running into directx errors and fallout is not able to load. I have everything updated so I think its something to do with my virtual box or a setting.

My system:

8 gigs DDR3
AMD PhenomII (Quad core)
1 TB hard drive (Full drive is located to Ubuntu, no partitions aside from swap)
ATI Radeon 4850 graphics card

I'm running Ubuntu server 10.10 with gnome desktop installed. from apt-get ubuntu-desktop

I gave my virtual Windows 7 64 bit the following resources:

4 gigs of RAM

and 400 GB hard drive space, dynamic.

Please let me know if you need any more information, any help is appreciated.
