      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Please note: these are the new drivers and require you to have the old official drivers installed (for blaster control access) Platform windows 95/98 Driver:Tntaw9X official release Available:from http://www.europe.creative.com/support/drivers/most.asp#id5 These drivers are the offical release for this card and as from the benchmarking results below this is the kind of performance achieved with these drivers on my system.

Obtained using 3dmark available from there website. The drivers themselves are very stable they are by no means the fastest I notice slowdown In games for example the opening inrto at the main menu on Tomb Raider 4 has a slight jerk as it goes round the fountain this can be eliminated by using the detonator 5-22 drivers but they are ver
      y unstable. Installation of the driver is simple unzip the file: go into device manager select properites in your graphics card tab, update driver point search for the drive: have disk point in the direction of your driver directory you have unziped click next done: You also get some extra tweaks like blastercontrol where you can overclock your card alter d3d settings open gl settings and your video setup settings. Overall very stable drivers
