I am running my ps2 thru my ATI TV card in my pc so that we can record live footage. I lag, as in when I move my controller it takes a sec for the character to reply. The geek squad at circuit city said it was my memory. i have install 1G. The problem hasnt changed. Do you have an answer?

if you upgrade your video card it will help. Keep in mind you are running AGP and good cards are starting to become hard to find. x800 or better from ati (as you already have an ati card and tuner) is what I would recomend.

This may not completly fix your issue. keep in mind you are going through a "tv tuner". this is really only meant for normal video. If you want lag free gaming then hook it up to your tv. It really comes down to trade offs. more hardware=better formance or no tv tuner=lag free gaming.

of course it could be something with your ps2 (test on tv to be sure). Although this is only a slim possibility.
