I have a Cyrix PR 200+ and replaced my video card Vierge 3s 4 mgs by a VIPER 550, 16 mgs in order to speed up my games, but my game speed stayed the same, and in some games, the action seems in packet, very annoying, is there another way to speed up things ? I have 32 mg ram and win95. alro

Are these DOS games ?
Have you installed up to date drivers for the Viper ?
It should be a lot faster, but only if Windows recognises that it's got another card in !

Riva TNT based cards are very CPU dependent.  You would really need a powerful PC in order to use it's power, a Cyrix Pr200 simply isn't enough (PII 300 upwards)  For your system, you might as well keep the old S3 Virge and exchange the Viper 550 with a Voodoo I based card. (Voodoo II again is very CPU dependent)

Also, adding more ram would help too.
