Hey guys, its me again! lol I know I'm annoying. Anyways I am having trouble with this "Video HW Transform & Lighting" when checking my Sys. Req. for certain games. I read from a few users that they have the same problem, but normally continue, passing up the warning, and that everything still works fine. What exactly does this do? What is the worst that can happen by ignoring it? Can I even run a game without it? Can I buy or install the "Video HW Transform & Lighting" separately and add it to my current video card? Any other useful information will be highly appreciated thanks.
