    OK, so it looks like I might be getting Rage soon and I haven't upgraded my video drivers in a couple years. Anyone know if Unreal/UT/UT2003/UT2004/UT3/Doom3/Q3/Q4/Painkiller all work fine in WinXP with the latest Nvidia drivers?

    UT should run just fine with modern cards if you're using enhanced OpenGL renderer.

    yep

    Most likely I won't get it until Christmas, so it should be fixed or totally f-ed by then.;)

    It was the original UT I was most worried about, so it looks like I'll be in the clear there and I'm guessing the others should be OK. What about Unreal?

    Getting ready to upgrade my Nvidia drivers finally because I have to now as the other thread states. Are there any recent WHQL Nvidia drivers (332.21 through 295.73) that anyone knows of to stay away from because it screws up any of the UT series games, Doom3, Quake4, Quake3, Painkiller, World of Tanks, GRiD or Rage?

    I do have enhanced OpenGL and S3TC installed for the original UT, so I'm set there. Thank you.:)

    crossing fingers and toes, UT3 works for now

    OK, I updated antispyware programs (etc.), windows updates, defrag and backup, then cleaned the video card and other connections and reseated the card and UT3 works now, so I'll proceed with those reviews as long as I can.:) I'm holding off on driver updates until I decide to finally try Rage or I get lockups again in any UT series game.
