  1. Glide was 3DFX only . No other card company supports Glide.

    Depending on the speed of your computer you could run it in D3D or OpenGL. But glide is gone with 3DFX.

    I aint signing nothing!!!

  3. Your best option would be a GF4 Ti 4200. But if I were you I'd throw in that GF2 and give it a shot. They were really good vid cards. If you do buy a new card stay AWAY from GF4 MX cards as they're really just GF2's on steroids.

  4. I too have the VooDoo5 card in two of my 4 computers. I upgraded to Windowz XP last year and had problems with drivers for that OS and the VooDoo5. I use the Dozer 1.1 drivers from VooDooiles.com and they work great on everything except UT2003. My other computers have ATI Radeon 8500LE/128 cards and after playing with some config stuff in the Quake2 config files, I got it playable and to be honest, the graphics are better than the VooDoo5's are. When you run Quake2 in openGL mode, for some reason it's too dark to play. I have the items for the config file to make them work though if you're interested.
