    Try going into Half-life's .ini file and changing the default video mode (to Direct3D, probably) to see if that's the problem. I had some similar problems on UT with both my Voodoo3 3000 and 3500.

    Since you have a 3dfx card you should use OpenGL and choose 3dfx mini driver, which will work for sure and have better performance than direct3d.

    Ditto, Choitin! And for even more awesome performance get the minigl from Wicked3D!
