I read the brandstring is the test not finding out what processor I have well I downloaded the intel Processor tool forgot name the one that identifies what processor have and it shows the same information I have in the 2nd attachment. My question is why do I received this error when trying to play some of the online game I downloaded. These are 2 errors I received. while 2nd one is the most likely.
Failed to create direct3d device object: hr+-2005530516(HWND+0x190854 / 1640532, PARENT_HWND+0x80a5e / 526942)!

You have an E8400 processor, from 2008.
The tool is designed for the Core processor family. Just disable "Stop on Error" and all will be ok.
By the way, you are in the wrong forum. You do not have a NUC.
You have the Q35 Express chipset for graphics from 2007. It only supports directx 10, and opengl 2.0.
You can find the latest drivers (from 2009) here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/81513/Graphics-Drivers-for-Intel-Q35-Express-Chipset
Check the requirements of your game(s).
