New drivers/Old card
 
Will the latest greatest drivers have any effect on an old Geforce2 MX card?
If not what are the best drivers for this card?

Thanks

In your case, the performance enhancements in the 40.xx series and new
Forcware 50.xx could translate down, but it's unlikely.

A better reason to use either the 45.23's or 52.16 (official) is the
better image quality and stability (bug fixes in games, etc).

Your overall performance won't increase very much from say the 21.83
drivers (yikes!) with such a limited card, but you can still get better
image quality (I've tested it on my secondary right with a GF2MX).

I haven't tested yet to see if the mipmap filtering adjustments made in
52.16 have translated down to older cards like my GF3TI200 or your MX;
but for now I believe it's only been modified for "intellisample" cards
like the TI4600 and FX series.

I don't know: I have a Geforce2 mx200 and I can't install the latest
drivers... but it seems it's coming from my system (see the other post I've
made).
But anyway the latest drivers have been made to answer specs for new
cards... you won't get anything from the latest ones

I have a GeForce 2 GTS (Creative Labs), and have seen steadily faster rates
on the DXDiag program, (Running DX 9 now) as the driver number have gotten
larger. I had a problem with 45.23, where all DX programs gave an error, so
I went back to 44.03.

I have now installed 52.16, and have a nicley stable system again. The frame
frates seem slightly slower than before, but they do seem more stable, and
the image does seem better. I realise that this is not quantatative
analysis, but my experaince. However, I am happy with my system with these
drivers.
