Will the ATI Radeon X300 work? I'm getting the following error:

GetDeviceCaps failed(D3DERR_NOTAVAILABLE) on adapter 0.

History: GetDeviceCaps <- UD3DRenderDevice::Init <- UGameEngine::Init <- InitEngine

It is the slowest of all the PCI Express cards and it (and the other PCI Express cards) are not listed on the supported card list. Do you have latest drivers from ATI? Do you meet other minimum game requirements (probably). I do not know about PCI Express support. Try asking in the Community thread.

Thanks for the reply. This is a pretty powerful system. I downloaded the and installed the latest Catalyst drivers from ATI and still a no go.

The only thing is that the system is Windows 2003 Server.

Also on the store page it says that all ATI X family cards are supported.

Thanks

Server 2003 is your operating system? That could be the problem. Says Windows 98/me/2000/XP only. Thanks for the info on the "X" cards being supported.
