I just found an old Pixelview Voodoo Banshee Agp with 16 mb of ram. I was wondering if I could get it to run proper under xp pro with the win 2k driver that is avalible on the web? Anyone tryed this..:?:

It would be great for my old P2 which is currently running a 3d rage 4 mb card, no gaming there.. :(

/Thx

Hey, don't be so harsh. In an older machine, those cards work wonders. If you haven't got anything helpful to add to the topic, then don't.

Unfortunately, I think the only way you are going to find out if that will work or not is to try it and see. There's a chance that XP will identify the card and have drivers for it anyway. Good luck, and I hope it works.

i know that some of the older ati cards *cough* Ati rage fury MAxx 64mb does not work with xp but i do have my old tnt ultra 32mb running great on my other pc on windows xp. I have no doupts that the card will not run cause i can say that chances are very high that it will just not very well as refresh rate willl be way down and stuff but you can always try GL :cheers:

Do a google search for voodoo video drivers. There are drivers that have been written (perhaps 3rd party) for card that run XP.
