Are you using this card in a motherboard with a VIA chipset?
Yes, mobo is Biostar M6VCI.

Edit: For some reason drivers called 3dfx Voodoo2 V3.02.02 work for me. Maybe installed DX7 was causing the problem? And do I lose anything using non 3D Blaster drivers?
Only the latest (3.02.02, requiring DX7 to be installed) or second to last (3.03.00, despite the number it isn't the latest one) 3Dfx Voodoo2 reference drivers works on faster systems.
The 3D Blasters drivers are older and you won't be missing that much except the option for setting vsync and overclocking the card without modifying the Windows registry.
So I guess that's normal? I noticed installing newest 3D Blaster 2.18 drivers do not change year in device manager (should be 1999 and stays 1998) also they look like are not loaded, the newest reference ones have gliched info about card (badly adjusted letters) but I don't think that's the issue. I have 1GHz processor.
And I guess I'm good to go, right? I don't really need overclock anything as Voodoo2 is more like glide loader as I'm using GeForce 4200Ti 128MB for DirectX and OpenGL. And I get rid off of startup error: error in 3dfxv2ps.dll. missing entry: UpdateRegSettings by simply removing bad entry with regedit.
Anyway, what does mean 'reference driver'? And will it allow SLI? Another CT6670 12MB on the way. 😀
And system info says I have 4/2/8MB RAM, is it really 12MB card?
