I have a Pentium 466 MHz Celeron , Intel 810 Chipset , with the motherboard having an inbuilt 4MB AGP card.
I have 192 MB of RAM and I am running Windows XP Pro.

So, Can I ever hope to run Quake 3 on this system ?
If yes, where can I get the latest Open GL drivers for XP ?
The motherboard's homepage doesnt have any updates for this.

Thanx in advance ! :)

I'm gonna go with no. I personally think most your machine is up to the task, but the 4MB graphics card is a major killer, I'm confused by what you meant by inboard agp? AGP is a slot that you put cards in, not one that's built into the motherboard (but I could be wrong)

Actually, I think your system should do alright. My old system (now the wife's) was a P3 600, with a 4MB AGP, and it ran Unreal Tournament fine. Just make sure you have all the updated DirectX and drivers you need, and I believe Q3 would run decent on yours.

Try 640x480 with medium resolution first, and then bump up the setting until you see a drop in framerate. When you see the difference, you will know your limitations.

no way

your system is good enough, way pass the Q3 requirement on processor (PII 300 i think). but in my opinion it won't or almost impossible to run it on a 4mb vid card. because the OpenGL instructions are hardware dependent...they are embedded inside a vga chip which has 16mb+ of video ram...i think u should hav to purchase a new video card... NVIDIA TNT2 M64 works fine enough.

Try finding out what make your card is. Then go to their site and d/l the XP (or if not available 2000) drivers with gl support.
