    Thanks. While you're at it, do you know where I can find Vista drivers for the card? nVidia doesn't make native vistsa drivers for the card.

    Cool. I've heard the 128mb flavor can overclock further. I want to say keep the bios as is and don't flash. Why you ask?

    It's an older card, a classic. Don't want to kill it from a bad flash.

    No they don't. GF 6th series are oldest supported.
    I'll try my best, but i have no idea if this will work.

    Edit: or maybe does... :| It has some weird old things in support list.

    The TI 4200 is in the support list of the modded INF. I don't know if it will actually work, but it is worth a shot. The drivers should install, but I don't knows if they will actually work.

    Yep. If they won't work, then no chance to run your card under Vista normaly.
