well, if i rememmber right UT supports glide, which would be the best choice for 3dfx cards.
as for opengl drivers, mesafx is the most compatible one with new games, wickedgl seems to be the fastest one.

But perfomanse lower then native Glide. WickedGL is miniOpenGL port that redirect OpenGL to Glide. This redirection take some perfomanse (10% perfomanse hit).

But you have the advantage of forceable texturcompression. This makes WickedGL little bit faster than native Glide. Especially in game situations with huge texture amount.

/edit: Man I'm an idiot. V3 and TC?
