Hi guys,
Im running:
Windows2000 (Non SP4) Original
AMD Athlon XP (The MAX Hertz, I forgotten the speed)
Latest Via Hyperion Today's date.
1GB SDRAM
160HDD Western Digital.
1 DVD ROM.
Voodoo5 5500 AGP
SFFT Alpha Drivers (Current driver).
17" Monitor.
SB Live Value! (Creative Soundcard)


Voodoo5 is OLD, but it is also a graphic card.
Graphic + OLD = GOLD!

=) I have a decent 50 FPS in the house, and 30 FPS when Im outside the house.
Running on 1280X1024! I never Overclock the graphic card, nor the processor. It is what it is!

Check it out! (I will upload more later)





Sweet, I can play. The game is nice. However, the sad part is, OpenGL sucks in WOW (It shows 3Dfx logo before it start).
It has to be played in Direct3D. Im going to upload more picture! so, stay tune!

Aye!

You have 30 fps outside? Wow. The last time I've played WoW in my voodoo machine (AXP Barton @ 2,7 GHz, quite fast), walking outside wasn't nice at all. It runs best with a Voodoo4 AGP4x, 'cause the game is damn "interface-limited". Is your AGP overclocked?

Yeap!
It was 30.. sometimes 20, when running outside.

Nope, the card was not overclock at all cause!

It was running "okay" speed. It is playable, and at certain camera angle, it did lag a little, but it was playable.

The WOW game, will not work nicely with OpenGL.
I just has to be Direct 3D.
Im going to get myself Voodoo4 AGP Soon. I post up more screenshot once I have the time.

Im not sure if 2 SLI Voodoo2 cards with windows98 is capable of WOW, but Im planning on testing it next month, if I have the PC ready. Im using Athlon XP 3200? is this correct? I remembered buy the processor at higher speed when it was available, but Im not sure whats Athlon XP MAX speed! =)

YEAP... all of these, runnin 20-30 FPS... it fluctuate too!
I did not over clock my card, its just how it is! It is playable, not very smooth, but it's fine with me.

As long as it dont lag during raid.. :)

Do leave feedback. I did not over clock anything, and I do not know how to overclock! ^^

Voodoo5 5500 RISE! =)
