Hi all,

Recently I wanted to play one of my old games again (FF7 for PC) and I remember how great it was on my old Voodoo2, but is very bad on my Radeon 9800pro (in software, and D3D hardware modes), so I put on another card, a GeForce2 MX200 PCI. It works fine in that but the quality isn't as good as I remember how the Voodoo used to be.

So what I want to try is this:

Main video card:
Radeon 9800 pro

GeForce2 MX200 <-- hook Voodoo2 here

Will this work? I want to make sure before I try, cause I don't want to waste time if it will not work. I searched some to look for this answer, but I am not sure. I read that I need a beta 2k driver? Or can I use FastVoodoo GE?

My system basics is:
AMD 64 3000+
Asus K8V SE Deluxe
Directx 9.0c

thanks in advance

..there is no need for the geforce,you can hook up the voodoo2 directly on the radeon.as for FF7,you have two choices:
-dualboot win98se to get full d3d support for the voodoo2
-use the legendgrafix voodoo2 driver for xp.it works,I have tested it myself (with FF7),the driver will create a voodoo2 icon on your desktop,you must drag the config file on the voodoo2 icon first,save the settings,and than drag the game exe on the voodoo2 icon,and the game will run (you may need to set it to win95 compatibility first)..
