    nVidia Geforce FX5200

    I just got this card in AGP flavour to replace my GF2MX. I only have a couple of (oldish - like DX7/8 from 2 years ago) games on my PC but they both crash when I run them now.
    I don't know if this is a hardware/driver/game-specific/OS (WinME) related problem, so I wondered if anyone can shed some light? I have the 61.76 drivers (I think that's the number from memory) and DX8.1 installed.

    Update your drivers to the latest official ones for ME (v71.84) here

    and then upgrade to DirectX 9.0c here

    Is DX9.0c supported on WinME? I know Win95 was dropped ages ago... Since the games I tried are DX7/8 games why would putting on DX9 change anything? Thanks for the drivers link though...
