  1. Hello. I'm just wondering if the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 graphics card has T&L capabilities. I'd like to play Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic on it but it runs so slowly on my computer even though I meet all the requirements except for the fact that I don't know if my graphics card is T&L capable. Thanks in advance.

    How much memory (RAM) do you have? That could be one of the factors.

    I have 512 mb of DDR SDRam, but when running my system it goes down to about 382, which should stil run it considering it minumum requirement is 256mb for winXP. I also have 128mb of video memory. I have all of the settings on low and it still runs slow.

    Thanks for all your help. I went to the website and it looks like it's the graphics card. I don't really have any money to upgrade so I guess I'll just forget about it for now.

    Your X200 takes it's video memory from your system memory. That's called turbo cache in most cases.
