I have a Cyrix 233mmx with 32 meg SD ram and a 4 meg s3 virge video card
and am running Windows 98. Recently I purchased a copy of the new Microsoft
Motocross Madness game. I have found that the screen is jumpy and doesn't
scroll smoothly. Would adding more ram fix this problem or is my video card
not fast enough? I have downloaded the latest video driver from the
manufacturers website but this has made no difference.

I Think A GeForce 8800GTX Would Do The Trick, Maybe 2-4GB RAM, AMD Phenom X4.

Dude what were you smoking when you replied to this? 1998? Thats like over 9 years ago now!!! Besides, those 233MHz had 1x AGP slots if that... not able to run one of those bad-boys ;)

Even a GeForce MX would have done it.....and a P2.

Really to keep up with todays games you need a new CPU, RAM and graphics cards.

it's resurrect old posts month....

those Cyrix CPU's had about half the floating point performance as equivalent InTel chips, totally useless for games of the day, got sucked in myself briefly trying to get Quake running smoothly way back when.

Interestingly the Cyrix design is what Via's CPU offerings evolved from :eek:
