Generally speaking, "renderer" refers to some code used to display gfx on your screen, and "legacy" probably refers to an earlier version of that code.

when legacy is unchecked it uses the Ex version of dx9.  Ex has a faster page flipping method but isn't compatible with every system.

so it's better to check it when it's compatible?
thanks for your help.
