With Catalyst 6.2, I am running the following in my Win9X machines:
-AMD X800 XT 256MB AGP on P4P800-VM and a Pentium 4 3.4Ghz with 3GB RAM*
-AMD X800 XL 256MB AGP on P4P800-VM and a Pentium 4 3.4Ghz with 3GB RAM*
-AMD X850 Pro 256MB AGP on Dell GX 260 and a Pentium 4 2.4Ghz with 512MB RAM
-AMD X800 Pro 256MB AGP
-AMD X800 GTO 256MB PCIe on Gigabyte GZ-K8N Ultra-SLI and Opteron 180 @2.4 with 2GB RAM*
These nVidia cards seem to have issues.
-Geforce 6800 GT 256MB PCIe the 81.98 official drivers do not seem to see it. The 82.69 unofficial drivers causes issues when trying to play >DX8 games. They seem to be unstable drivers.
-Geforce 6800 XT 512MB AGP the 81.98 official drivers do not seem to see it. The 82.69 unofficial drivers causes issues when trying to play >DX8 games. They seem to be unstable drivers.
-Geforce 7950 GT 512MB PCIe is also not recognized by the official 81.98 drivers. The 82.69 unofficial drivers seem to put the display into a frantic blinking whenever you try to start that driver install either by the “Setup.ISS” or the “Change Video Driver” under Advanced. It is just completely unusable.
-GeForce 7600 GS 512MB AGP again is not recognized by the official 81.98 drivers and the 82.69 drivers seem to load, but will shut itself off after after any reboot upon the initial installation. It will boot like normal, but when it loads the video driver while the Windows is booting, it will just shut itself off.
-Geforce 8800 GTS 320 PCIe is the same as the 7600 GS.
-Geforce 8800 GT 512 PCIe is the same as the 7600 GS.
Cards that I have been able to get working without issues (minor testing):
-GeForce 6800 Ultra 256MB OC AGP
-GeForce 6800 Ultra 256MB AGP

Just an FYI, there seems to be a patch made by the famous Mr. RLoew that allows the 9X operating system to not “freak out” when you try to use a video card with 512MB of VRAM. After the great Mr. RLoew passed away in September from issues with his heart condition, his son has been greatly appreciated by the 9X community as he had given permission to collect and distribute Mr. RLoew’s work freely so that his father’s legacy lives on. There is a website that has this collection:
