Tribes 2 Requirements
Although many people have been able to play with requirements lower than what it listed it is HIGHLY recommended that you pick up a GeForce series or Raedon video card. Although every attempt has been made to enable 3Dfx card owners to play the game smoothly, since 3Dfx was bought out by nVidia there just isn't the support.

Now that isn't to say that if you own a V3 / V4 / V5 you can't run Tribes 2, but you will get a lot of texture clipping and you'll have to fool around with the settings quite a bit to have any success.

The best way to find out is to pick up the game and try it out on whatever card you currently own. If it runs, great. If not, it's time to upgrade. Tribes 2 *really* needs a flying OpenGL card, period.
