    Hmmmm. We need a little more info:

    1. What do you mean "3Dfx games"?
    2. Which drivers are you using?
    3. All games have trouble?
    4. Do you currently have a V2 also?
    5. Which games?

    Could be heat. If you don't already have one, try installing a slot cooler in the slot below your GeForce. It'll suck out all the hot air the heatsink/fan on the GeForce is blowing around. The heatsink/fan is useless if the hot air doesn't get removed from the area around the card.

    Or, worse, it could be a power problem. Look at the I/O voltage in the BIOS, or better yet using Motherboard Monitor 4.16. For a GeForce, you want it significantly above 3.3V, as close to 3.5V as possible. When 3D gaming, the voltage can drop below the nominal 3.3V and the GeForce shuts down. This happen mostly in older mobos like yours. If this is the case, return it while you still can.

    2. Old Crap Beige Case, Gigabyte GA-H55M-S2H, Core i3 530, 4GB CL8 OCZ DDR3-1600, eVGA GTX465

    1.) 3dfx games like Rogue Spear / Need for Speed / Fifa 2000 / Sim Theme Park /etc.

    2.) I've installed the newest drivers I found at Creative and at Nvidia.

    3.) After I play about 5 to 10 minutes the system stops and nothing goes( even Strg+alt+del doesn't work)!


    4.)No

    5.) see 1.)

    I hope you have a solution

    You mean the Glitch-force Pro don't you?
    Stick with a Voodoo3000 until the 5500 comes out. Or take your chances on an NV15 when it comes out if you like being a glitch-buster.

    I've just one more question:

    Is it possible to connect the 3DBlaster Geforce Pro with another power supply??

    Send me your opinions

    Thanks
