Angry pssshh

me being all jedi and **** i decided to start playing star wars knights of the old republic on my comp. first time ive tried since i built this bizatch and i run the puter test built into it, and it sez my 6800gt is yellow, and reccomends i have a 4400ti or better, (wtf?!) yellow being maybe itll work as opposed to the green go ahead for rest of my system. So now its buggy ingame, and i know kotor wasnt the smoothest playing game, but i thought that i could play max settings at 1024x768 reasonably, at certain places (dantooine namely) it lags all over and i everything drops down to what looks like 15-20fps at 1600x1200, keeping in mind kotor is like 2 yrs old and 6800gt should pwnz0r it.
WTF?! help plz.
(yea that was confusing. )
also i wiped my HD and tried to reregister and windows with my key on the damn little sticker and it sez its alread yin use or something, do i need to call up windows with the number it shows? i've been putting off doing it for 2 weeks, only 15 days left to register, til i can only assume windows locks me out

Yes, call Microsoft.

Have you updated the drivers for your card? And have you checked to see if there is a patch for the game?
