This card was top-tier in about August 1998. Best now as just a display card, but you may find it won't run today's software.
I have windows 98se and the last update I can find is 2002. My grandson wants to play a video game and I hve STB Velocity 128 3D AGP(Nvidia Riva 128) I have tried and cannot find anything.
Your best bet is a new video card. The updated drivers may help some but as mentioned above, the card is old and may still not be good enough for today's games. A good video card can be had today for less than $100 that will handle most games. I would suggest a video card not have less than 64 megs of video ram but more is even better.
Concur. I think I paid $54 USD including free shipping for a 8x AGP GeForce4 MX440 with 64 megs of DDR memory, and that will certainly handle Return to Castle Wolfenstien or quake3 handily with a decent processor. And that was far from the least expensive.
I'm assuming this is in an AGP slot, PCI slows things down a lot, although you'll want to find out what speed the AGP slot is, as 4x and 8x cards are not compatible with 1x or 2x. The voltages to the card change downward as the speed increases.
AFAIK, a 2x card can be used in a 1x slot, since they're both the same voltage. 4x and 8x get more interesting as some cards don't follow the voltage changes right.
