Does anyone know how to select which card ( when you have
multiple card installed ) to use for direct3d.  I found a
utility on the internet called 3d control center but when I
use it, I get the same exact perfermance for both of my cards
(not possible).  I have a 3d blaster and monster 3d.  Anyone know how to disable the 3d blaster for direct3d.

Download DirectControl from ftp://ftp.cdrom.com/pub/3dfiles/utility/setupdcontrol.exe, it will allow you to enable or disable the hardware acceleration for your 3dfx card.

Oh, you will also need Visual Basic runtime to use this utility...
