    lol, i'm retarded:

    The NVIDIA Driver Update 2.6, which installs updated drivers for Power Mac computers with nVidia graphics cards in Mac OS 9, does not work in the Mac OS X Classic environment.

    i could have sworn i read somewhere that this driver is OS X only. oh well.

    "lol, i'm retarded"

    That makes two of us... I just tried Quake3 in OS 9 again and all I can say is...

    HOLY CRAP!!! :yipee: :eek: :rofl:

    I think I got something like 20-25 more FPS!!! 100FPS max and an average of about 60-70. Nice for a GF2MX (SDR-RAM version) 1024x768 w/ Max detail.

    If they manage to pull this kind of thing off with OS X, (where Q3 seems a little smoother and loads faster), I may just consider forking over for a GF4 Ti instead of the less expensive Radeon 8500... Unless of course their drivers improve to this level in half a years time, which is quite possible.
