: I have a H.P. with celeron 366 and an ati rage2c. I see nothing except for my car and trees. I also have directx 7.oa on my computer.
A rage2c doesn't support hardware based acceleration of textures, or any of the graphical
effects that 3D accelerator cards do, such as
bilinear filtering, perspective correction,
fogging, Z-Buffer and MIP mapping (all these improve image quality). The rage IIc doesn't have
enough fillrate to perform adequately + it's not
designed to accelerate texturing. Get a 3D
accelerator card, cards that do 3D acceleration
include Voodoo 3, Savage 2000, Geforce 256
and Matrox G400. They each have varying performance, price, features and image quality.
Go to 3D gaming sites and read reviews of 3D
cards and decide for yourself. By the way, you
might want to wait a month as a new batch of 3D
cards will come out that will be much faster then
today's, and this will cause price cuts on
existing 3D cards.
