If it hadnt been for xp id have stood a fair chance of being basicly screwed heh.

I am using the newer 9016 Win98se drivers and have no visual problems at all.

I have not ran 3dMark2001se as yet on these new drivers. I will and see if or how much the new drivers help over the 9008's I ran before.

I have had no visual quality problems at with any drivers I have tried.

I did install a 120mm fan in the side of the case blowing outside air directly on the vid card and the cpu.

This fan alone lowered the temp on the processor by 10c. I mainly did this to help cool the vid card.

I have felt of the vid card after a long stretch of 3d gaming. RTCW to be exact and the vid card was very hot to the touch.

This seemed to be the better and most economical solution of cooling the vid card.
