It is quite relevant, actually. You need to open your NVIDIA Control Panel and click on "Change resolution". There will be a list of what resolutions your video card drivers presently supports. If 1600x1200 is not listed, then you need to click on the "Add Resolutions" button and check the box beside "Enable resolutions not exposed by the display", then look in "Resolutions" box above and if 1600x1200 is there, check it. If it isn't, then click on the "Create Custom Resolution" button, enter 1600 horizontal and 1200 vertical, test and save. When running at that resolution, you're going to have to configure your 16:10 display to preserve the 4:3 aspect ratio. This is done differently on different display models and some can't do it at all, so you'll have to find out how it is done on your particular monitor either from the owner's manual or by searching the web.

Yes, the Dantooine lag fix is supposed to fix the most common problems that the NVIDIA DX10 cards have had with rendering the KotOR games, but this obviously isn't the problem in your case, since I can tell from your swconfig report that you have already implemented it.

"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
