  1. problems---please help

    Alright this is the problem
    I recently upgraded to Windows XP and since then i cannot get any of my games to play anymore....a friend of mine suggested that it could be my Voodoo 3dfx card and i should upgrade (or look for an upgrade)
    but i am not sure which one to get to play games

    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    Thanks in advance

    Can't play any games? Voodoo cards have unofficial drivers for XP but only for Glide (and probably OpenGL 1.1), not Direct3D afaik.
