Sure they suck, on that mangy 486...


Most graphics problems under Windows Xp and 2000 can
ultimately be traced to poorly-written video card
drivers... the NVidia and TNT, Voodoo, Banshee, and
other 3D-focused cards are the worst. The developers
put all their time into the 3D code, leaving the 2D
code working like crap.

YMMV, etc...
