Ok folks so I considering getting some badboy for this boxen. This is a Tyan S2466 board with 2x Athlon MPs so it's a perfect Windows XP retro gaming.
As the manual says: 4x AGP graphics card
I had a Geforce 4200Ti in this.
Some game benchmarks on XPSP3 with 4200ti:
- Dungeon Siege 15FPS
COD2 30 FPS
dio2 25 FPS
Oppforce 59 FPS
Morrowind 16 FPS
Q3 90 FPS
Not bad for old games but as we start moving ahead to that Dungeon Siege2 / Sacred 2 / Half Life 2 range this card starts to be poor. Any recommendations for NVIDIA card to maximize the boards potential whilst keeping the longest range of backwards compatibility with games? (I don't want to go back to Win98SE level of games with this box just XP).
Also I looking for NVIDIA as I planning on having retro Linuxes, BSDs on this box as well and the old ATI drivers were trash and I just hate ATI in general.
