Default Which Linux driver version is optimal for GF Ti 4200?

Hello,

Currently i have Linux driver version 8178 installed, and i am having some problems with OpenGL programms (mostly games). Then i tested an older version from the 7xxx series which works mostly better, but therefore many crashes. Does someone know which driver version is optimal vor my Geeforce 4 Ti 4200 (64MB).
My system is: Slackware Linux 10.2 with Kernel 2.6.15-SMP, glibc 2.3.5, gcc 3.3.6

Thanks for any info.
tyr.

You can try to install newest drivers.

well its quite common that drivers become slower and slower over time for older - to push you to buy a new card. However this does not mean I imply this happens - it could happen through regressions or whatever not really done with slowing older stuff down explicitly.

Question Re: Which Linux driver version is optimal for GF Ti 4200?

Well, for example on my old box i have an old Geforce 256 DDR card, which is no longer supported by the latest drivers but the card works very good with a set of old drivers, but i have tested nearly all driver version with my Geforce Ti 4200 and none of them really satisfy me, so could it be that the card itself has a problem?
