Both Nvidia and ATI are pretty much compatible with anything. The only problesm ATI had was their drivers use to suck but they have gotten TONS better.

Maybe this is just me, but beware of the nVidia infinite loop issue in XP...it happens to me every day. (But that's just my computer, I used cheap memory as well, and it's a cheap video card (eVga). I love how fast it is though, and just experiment with the Dentonator drivers. I'm using 28.32 and have tried every single set there is save the beta versions. Go

UofEEE are you overclocking your card at all? You shouldent have an infinate loop everyday. I have a gf2mx400 and ive gotten it 3 times all due to overclocking.

The infinite loop issue depends pretty much on your particular hardware, the weather, and how you take your tea. Some folks never have to deal with it, some always do; most of my nVidia-equipped PCs have never experienced it, but the K6-2 in the living room chokes on it every time with drivers higher than 21.xx. It's worth noting that although it's primarily a Geforce issue, some Radeon owners have reportedly been plagued with it, as well.

Your specs Apu95, please !

It depends on the cpu, Athlon4 or P4 ?

In other threads, some discuss problems with AMD+XP+NVIDIA+GAMES and not AMD+XP+ATI+GAMES !

ATI is a good choice also (7500 or 8500), I made it ! And I'm fully satisfied, up to now.
Let's stop claiming Nvidia is the only one video chip maker on our good mother earth, for once !

most all nvidea chips will work fine with XP, but go with the newist nvidea cards like gf4 ti 4200 and so on, Buts if i was u i'd buy a Visiontek Xtasy ge-force 4, they've done nothin but master the american market.

The Voodoo's died pretty much after the Voodoo4 and 5. The Voodoo5 was... well not even an honerable mention.

For those with infinite loop....Download NVmax...there is actually an option that says it can stop the infinite loop error...I don't know since I've never tried it as I've neer had the error but if your gettin it everyday it's sure worth a shot :)
