I have a GForce2 works fine for me in winxp. before i had XP a week ago and i ran fs2 whit geforce2 it crashed also and some other weird things but in XP it works fine. If you are already runnin XP then i don't know what the prob is...or win doesn't like the new drivers

Hmm... I own a Elsa Gladiac 920 GeForce 3, which is basically a TI 200, and I've had no problems so far. Except that I can't play it in Glide, but thats not a shock. It runs fine in DirectX. Could you put up you're comp stats? That might help to see if there's any known conflicts...  
I have returned... Again...

Yup it's time to go to XP maby thats why FS2 crashes after 5 min, becaus it doesn't like the drivers or the amount of DDR on the card.

And Dark, Gforce cards don't support Glide that only have 3DFX cards the rest of the cards that arent 3DFX based support OGL.

Hmm, not that different from mine, except for the soundcard... Ok, have you installed the latest Via 4in1 drivers and IDE tool? Cause if I remember correctly, windows doesen't install the proper AGP drivers for the geforce card. It won't hurt to install them.

But I really think you should get a new soundcard. That one is a wee bit old. They aren't that expensive, and trust me, you'll hear the difference. If you're gonna get one, you have to remember some things. The SB Live! series has some problems with VIA chipset and bios, but if you've flashed it, than no worries, I suggest you check it up anyway. But if you get the  SB Audigy (which I have and had no problems with it so far), it ain't that dissimilar, except it won't have any of the major problems as the Live! series had.

Upgrading to XP also solves ALOT of problems, BUT there is one down side. The SB16 emulator will not be supported in it. However, I've found a program that contains it's own emulator, and will work for XP.

Anyway, it could be that the VIA 4in1 drivers aren't installed which might be bugging up the game, or the the soundcard.

Hope some of this helps...

But for any other reason, upgrade you're sound card, you'll hear the difference!

I have a standard (non-Ti) GeForce3 that is overclocked to 250/575mhz and it runs perfectly fine on WinME; your symptoms point towards heat issues though, so you might want to check the temperature levels and make sure those are within acceptable parameters.

its not a heat issue that im sure of , im going to watch the clock time in freespace 2 , but i bet it crashes on 5,03 minutes every time as it always appears to be the same amount of time...i'll check  

but this is only occuring in fs2 ....still think its heat related

That never can have anything to do whit heat, the only thing i can come up is that you need to upgrade to WinXP because i think win98 1st edition can't handle the card very wel and it can't get the best out of it and XP can. so i think you should upgrade to XP download the XPdrivers and then try. Otherwise i have no idea.

The GF3 I had came with a medium-sized fan but I replaced that with a six-inch "Delta" fan for overclocking. (it is large enough to cover the entire graphics card ) The computer now has 11 fans of various sizes in it now and so I have not had any heating issues, but it is extremely loud for a computer. (sounds a lot like the venting system inside commercial airlines actually)

Yeah there very good indeed

a benchmark  http://www6.tomshardware.com/graphic/02q1/020122/radeon7500-06.html

Under winXP it performce a litle bit slower but you would even notice it.

Really?  WinXP performance slower?  Most of my games are faster and smoother.  I think it probably has to do with running in full 32bit model unlike the Win9.x setup which was 16bit/32bit.

I had problems running AGP4X under Win98SE, but under XP there are no problems.  Time to upgrade CptWhite.
