Dunno, you'll have to try it. Maybe you should get the Demo to try. This will be the original Il-2 and not FB, since there is no FB demo. If that works, you can probably try the full game. Il-2 sturmovik, should be really cheap by now. You should ask in the tech forums.

Early Nvidia TNT cards with 16 megs and VooDoo3 series cards will run FB.
No matter how fast your computer is there will be issues and slow video.

Older video cards will not fit current mother boards.

I have run the following cards on FB and OR IL2.
Results are with all settings for fastest frame rates.

From slowest to fastest

16 megs video RAM, Nvidia TNT2
16 megs video RAM, VooDoo3 3000
16 megs video RAM, VooDoo3 3500
64 megs video RAM, VooDoo5 5500
64 megs video RAM, Nvidia GeForce3 200 TI
128 megs video RAM, ATI RADEON8500le
128 megs video RAM, ATI RADEON9000
128 megs video RAM, ATI RADEON9700pro
256 megs video RAM, ATI RADEON9800XT

Video performance and prosessor speed are not
as connected as video card and video performance.
ATI cards rock. All the cards listed give good to phenominal performance.
The slowest card on the list to give acceptable performance is the VooDoo5 5500. All the 16 meg cards have frame rate and tearing issues.

BUT all the above will run FB above a "slide show" frame rate.

For VooDoo drivers, see the voodoo files site. There were never any 3DFX drivers for Windows Me, 2000 or XP. Third party drivers are available at the VooDoo files and some are great. I run my VooDoo5 5500 on XP with no issues. Primarily used for older "legacy games" the VooDoo5 machine also runs FB with good frame rates.

I got to think we would all be a lot better off if 3dfx/VooDoo had not gone belly up.

Yes, in the sense that it is possible to walk to the North Pole.

I used a Voodoo3 to play original IL-2. It ran, and could technically be "played".

The next day I bought a GF2 MX.

They were bought out by nVidia. I still have my voodoo3 3000 16mb. Just don't have a use for it.
