    It might have been an idea to include what game you are talking about, so that others that have played, using similar cards, can comment. Most likely your graphics card doesn't support some of the features required.

    Even if your card does support ligthning effects, its gonna be hell a lot slower. From time to time, there would be severe drops in FPS. Do keep in mind that your running a PCI card.

    I deal with 3dfx cards quite a bit.

    Give me a bit of info.

    - OS being used
    - Any unique patches applies
    - Game in question
    - Driver you are using for the video card

    I might be able to help
