Need some advice

I have been using a Voodoo 3 3000 graphics card for some time , and the drivers I use are the original 3dfx drivers . Now with the latest news that the 3dfx will not be posting any new drivers , means that the last driver only supported direct x 8 and not direct x 8.1 ( is this true ???)
Is it required to install drivers of third parties or is it ok to stick to the originals.( please clarify )???

There is a website called Voodoo files that has all the drivers of third parties but I would only use them if it is required.

thank u

the original drivers are ok to use with DX8.0 and above you might get more performance out of the new drivers but if you are happy enough leave well enough alone

go to this site it seems quite good and can answer all your questions much better than I can and has provided links to all the relevant drivers with links in the text, read the article or print it out and then click on the operating system you have highlighted in the blue text and uninstall the old ones and install the new ones ;) hope this helps....
