Hi, as the title says, if one wants to have the best overall compatibility and performance with win9x titles, this is the combo to get?
My rationale after reading a lot of threads is this (bear with me):
AFAIK most "exclusive*" glide titles have low res textures that doesn't benefit with higher resolutions or doesn't have the option to scale beyond 640x480 so a voodoo2 should satisfy. e.g. nfsIIse, rtwc98.
For DX5,Dx6,Dx7 titles, FX5900 is the fastest without breaking compatibility.
Dx8 and up is XP territory.
I appreciate any suggestion you may have.
*I know some games received patches for D3D, albeit slower than glide, fx5900 should offset this penalty and therfore use DX render.
