Not sure where to post this ,I just started here and I have a geforce 9800gt 1gb graphics card and I get this message saying it lacks needed features for milkyway@home, it runs cuda work on other projects, is this a hardware or software problem?

I think your problem is that your card isn't new enough for this project. It needs to support double precision. See this thread for more info: http://milkyway.cs.rpi.edu/milkyway/forum_thread.php?id=1083
Doesn't expecting the unexpected make the unexpected the expected?
If it makes sense, DON'T do it.
