    I think I have a compatibility problem between my voodoo3 3000 agp card and my board(gigabyte ga-bx2000). When I play graphically intensive programs like dues ex ,sof or IGI . My machine will crash( screen goes blank or multiple lines and emits a loud squealing noise. The only way to get out of it is to do a warm boot. But, like I said it is random and I do not know what is causing it. I have heard from other people that it might be a compatibility problem. If anyone could help it would be appreciated. Oh ya, I tried updating drivers also to know luck. Hope someone can help!
    Cheers

    Sorry to tell you but 3dfx is no more, they went out of business a couple months ago. I don't think you will get a reply
