    Hi all,

    I have a voodoo 5 video card and I can't play some games like rainbow 6 all series... is there any patch out there that can fix this problem? thanks.

    If it's one series game discussion surelly exist a patch .. I've had this AGP VidCard , haven't tried this game with it :( , you should list your drivers also

    I am using the built-in winxp driver, I tried the lastest 3rd party driver also I believe it is 1.09beta ... doesn't work either... there is not original driver for xp from voodoo .... as I know.. they have closed down a long while ago....

    Try going to http://www.voodoofiles.com and click on the 3DFX button, you will find original and beta drivers for your voodoo.

    Unfortunately I agree, you need a new video card. Don't get me wrong, my wife inherited my Voodoo 5 5500. As soon as I upgrade my current card, (GF4 ti4600), she will get it. Prices are dropping rapidly on high end cards, so take a look at whats out there.

    I have to agree with G-money. I have a voodoo 4 and had to retire it. The speed and lack of adequate drivers just isn't worth the effort of keeping it alive.

    Has a comprehensive list of all video cards available and their relative performance. The bottom of the line cards will at least double your frame rate over the 5500 series. Cost will be in the $50-80 (US) range.

    It's time to let go... :huh:
