Trouble with the video card

  1. Okay, I have a ATI Radeon 9200 (or 9250, not sure) with I think it's either 128 or 256 (think it's the first) video ram. But recently, Star Wars Galaxies has been reporting me not having enough memory for it to start "Required: 32mb (found 0mb). It runs but there is lag (barely noticable through)

    However, Today I tried playing World of Warcraft and the lag was hellish... so the problem is becoming a major problem.Does anyone know what I can do the fix this problem? (short of buying a new card as I don't have much money)

    EDIT: I just ran SWGClientSetup.exe and now it's reporting something different (lag is still there,both games)
