    There are drivers out for the VOodoo series cards, however they are not official. They should work with Voodoo3/4/5 cards.

    I read somewhere that NVidia wasn't going to let Microsoft write drivers for new Operating systems. That might have just been a rumour though. Here's a link other 'community made' voodoo drivers:

    now that my specs are respectable, I might as well list them again:

    I'm having problems with numerous things right now like....(games)hitman, midtown madness2,unreal tourney, red faction, jet fighter4, etc... I can't get WMPlayer to play movies with Divx like it used to. Also, XP took away my video out options and I'm hoping there's going to be an update for this???????????I've already fixed my sound problem(digital speakers with SB128D sound card. If anyone knows any cures right now, please let me know.

    Guys, I wish all of you would just not buy XP and send a message to those ****heads in Redmond. Voodoo's were better vidcards and all of us voodoo users know it. Now we are going to be stuck with games only available in D3D in next couple of years I bet. No more OpenGl I bet. And you know who owns nVidia right? No more videocard options for us gamers besides thew geforce line of ****. I rest my case.

    Right..........

    Uh i hate to break it to you but 3dfx were their own worst enemy. They assumed that people would forever want to play in low res's in 16 bit "glory". Well we don't!! 3dfx just weren't innovating, they stuck with the multiple processors-on-a-board trick as it was pretty easy to keep doing and it increased performance but while 3dfx was going for the lazy route Nvidia kept released faster and more powerful processors and GPU's with more powerful capabilities and advanced features to make games more realistic and kept adding more bandwidth so we could play in higher resolutions.

    The sad thing is 3dfx just sat on their laurels for way to long and they paid for it in the end because by the time they got off their asses and tried to come up with something good (and they were working on some good stuff towards the end) it was way to late. Say what you want but you can't blame Nvidia for 3dfx's demise. No, 3dfx dug their own grave there!

    All respect to them though, as they were the ones that brought 3D gaming to the masses.
