Graphic Card Compatablilty Issues
I recently installed Ue4 on an old pc i have just for kicks to see if i could possible get it to run until i can get myself a better more suitable machine. Everything installed fine but when i try to run it i get a message.
WARNING: Known issues with graphics driver
This installed version of the AMD graphics driver has known issues. Please update to the latest driver version.
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Installed: 8.632.1.2000 Recomended: 16.60.2711.0
Im aware that the pc itself doesn't have nowhere near the power to run certain things but i figured it has enough to dilly dally with until i got something better to work with. Its a toshiba satellite l645d-s4040, windows 7 64 bit, 4gigs of ram (which ive seen other users use), AMD Athlon 2 P320 Dual Core Processor 2.1 GHZ, and its got direct x 11 installed. I could see my power being an issue but it seems somehow the graphics card isn't good enough. When i do manage to get a better pc in the future how will i know if my graphics card will be good enough because all the unreal faq says is "a DX11 compatible video card" which apparently mine is and its an issue. I see they have a list of ones they recommend but if i find a pc that doesn't have a card they suggest how can i make sure its gonna work with unreal before i buy it?

As far as I know, only ATI cards from 5xxx up support DX11. That does not apply to your card. Besides, it is an order of magnitude below the necessary power.
Also, while UE4 running on 4GB of RAM might be somewhat usable, do note that this memory pool will need to be shared with the onboard video card in this case.
Once you find something that fits your budget, post it here. There's a quite a lot of older video cards on the market that will have respectable performance.
