First off - these are the latest drivers for nvidia cards - http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_2k_53.03
Secondly the specs for the game say that it needs a minimum of 16 MB on the card.
About the card itself
The Compaq NVIDIA TNT2 M64 Pro graphics controller has the same 2D/3D core and RAMDAC as the NVIDIA TNT2. The major difference is that the memory bus bandwidth of the M64 Pro controller has been reduced to 64 bits, which restricts performance at higher resolution and color depth but reduces the cost considerably. Hence, the Compaq NVIDIA TNT2 M64 Pro controller delivers exceptional price/performance value and visual quality for mainstream PC-based applications used by small and medium business PC users. The 211081-B21 and 216080-B21 option kits include the graphics controller, a CD with WindowsÒ 2000, Windows 98/95 and Windows NTÒ drivers, a read-this-first card and Compaq warranty statement.
The NVIDIA TNT2 M64 Pro processor uses the same drivers as the TNT2 and is built with the same 0.22* *micron process. The 32-MB frame buffer, 32-bit color pipeline, and 32-bit Z/stencil buffer deliver excellent quality and performance, and its internal TwiN Texel architecture is one of the fastest 128-bit 3D processors on the market today, delivering 2 pixels-per-clock cycle and single-pass multi-texturing. On a 600-MHz Pentium III 2D, the TNT2 M64 Pro controller delivers 265 fps 2D Winbench 99 (business), 684 fps 3D Winbench 99 (16 bpp) and 36.4 fps 3D Winbench 2000 (16 bpp).
Compaq has a solid reputation for delivering high-quality, reliable enhancement products. Compaq enhancement products are designed and tested to rigorous specifications, including tough qualification requirements for suppliers, stringent performance specifications, and a thorough testing process to ensure consistent quality from prototype to production.
Ok, I got one for ya. Chuck's friend at work is trying to install a game. The game is Combat Flight Simulator 3. He said that every time he tries to install it, it says that the video card drivers are not compatible with the game. He's running Windows 98SE, and the video card is nVidia TNT 2M64 (DELL) 18.104.22.1684 We updated the drivers from driverguide.com and still the same message comes up. I don't remember the rest of the specs (Chuck called me from the guys house and I found the drivers - unless they're the wrong ones). I know he had enough hard drive space, ram, etc. Any suggestions? Thanks.

It's lonely out here.
"To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others; to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
