Ya might have some issues with the Nvidia FX5700 with Windows 98 Mad. Not sure there would even be any drivers for that man. Riva TNT yes, but a FX5700 may be a bit hard to find..........Of course unless ya found some LOL.

Also in your poll, why don't you include Windows 3.11? :laugh::laugh::laugh:

Can you say "out and back?" :laugh:
Got me some drivers. And actually if I had some really old hardware windows 3.11 would be a project system. But I need a 386 or 486 system for that. Which I don't have. The oldest I have right now is the slot1 and slot A systems. Hell I am still hunting for the elusive super socket 7 board I have been hunting for about 3 or 4 years now. I want one that is Atx with a agp port and mvp3 chipset.




he'll probably have more issues with the voltage changes between agp revisions. Fortunately when they did the AGP slot they accounted for this, and thus a 1.5V card will not go in a 3.3v slot or vice versa.

I am good there as the Geforce card is a 4x agp card and not a 8x card. Now my hd2400pro is a 8x card and doesn't have the 3.3volt notch like the fx5700 has.

Here is a pic of them. The 2400 8x card is the second card in the top row of gpu's and the fx5700 is the 4th/last card in the top row.
