Hi friend,

just you visit 3dfx Voodoo3 drivers page for Win XP environment: you can see all latest and suggested anofficial releases for this card.

But...reading your hardware system (particulary motherboard and cpu)...I would suggest use Windows 98 SE OS getting best performance results with 3D applications and all other

Best regards,

Glide

the XP drivers here will work fine with that motherboard. at 550Mhz, XP WILL be much slower than 98se! I do believe that that motherboard may be able to handle up to 768MB of ram (all BX chipsets can), but the board may or may not have the three PC100 ram slots for it. Maximize ram for XP if you can, as this will help and XP acctually can use over 512MB.

Bloody Mess

I think that the amount of RAM affects how smoothly will WinXP Runs too..
i only use Celeron 450 with 256MB RAM in old system running windows XP..it is quite slow compared with the AMD K6-400 with 128MB EDO RAM running windows 98SE..
