Yep sxamiga, if you have a VIA chipset on your new motherboard I STRONGLY suggest you install the VIA 4 in 1 patch 1.31 (http://www.viatech.com/jsp/en/dr/driver.jsp), it made my 3dmark2001 score jump from 900 to 2500, quite a difference! Now my win2k runs as fast as my winme! Apparently, win2k has bad 3rd party chipset support. BTW, does anybody use 3dmark2001? On the last test (the one with the spinning horse), on winme there are lots of holes in it, whereas in win2k the horse is solid. I think it is worse quality in directx 8.1 and better with 8.0 too.
