Default Graphics and PC spec match

Hello, I have Project 1.6 and 1.7 separately on my computer with various ROMs and I've detected some graphics/flickering issues with StarFox flickers, Orge Battle(Battleground is blank black), Paper Mario flickers, MK Trilogy & Tetrisphere slow-motion. D'oh!

Here's my computer spec *Old I know, laugh all you want! *
DELL Dimension 3000
INTEL(R)
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 2.80GHz
2.79 GHz, 512 MB of RAM
Windows XP Home Edition SP3

Video Card: NVIDIA 4 GeForce4 MX 4000

I've messed with lots of video plug-ins for PJ64 1.7 and some for PJ64 1.6 and I've read some threads on this forum for a fix to help my games running smoothly, nonetheless, haven't find right plug-in/or graphic configurations setting. I'm starting to think it could be just my P.O.S computer so I'm hoping I can get some help from you guys, here are some questions;

1) Which version should I use PJ64 1.6 or 1.7 and why?

2) Which video plug-ins do you think would suit my system better?

Thanks!

Eh, didn't realized I posted in wrong section so please move my post to open discussion would be grateful!

And one more thing, it could be possible because of bad ROMs that causes these video issues while playing games. Can I see complete lists of websites where there are good ROMs out there if neccassary? Thanks in advance.

Your graphics card is sort of low-end.

I had an NVIDIA GeForce FX5200 at first, which was sort of like, borderline for glitchless N64 emulation using Direct3D..

If you have MX 4000 then that's why you have the graphics issues I think.

Want to try a driver update for your graphics card? It might fix some glitches.

Project64 versions 1.6 and 1.7 will affect compatibility, speed and stability but not the issues you have with graphics emulation, although their corresponding default plugins may. If you have memory crashes etc. with 1.7 then you should try rolling back to Project64 1.6, but otherwise which one you use is fairly easy to answer from your own perspective.

You should try using Jabo's Direct3D6 1.5.2, which should be bundled with Project64 1.6. It might fix some graphics glitches, while creating others.
Also Rice's Video Plugin and glN64 are worth a try. See a list of plugins here.

In no way may we intentionally or unintentionally advocate the downloading of ROMs or otherwise commit a process of infringing retrieval.

It turns out that you are right, Rswedlow. It's my graphic card after I tested those plug-ins you suggested. The results came just the same. Appreciate your response on this. I'll just go ahead and play just few games that runs on my computer just fine.

Great forums here, guys.

If you try glN64, though, it should be different to some minimal extent.

This probably won't affect graphics quality but is a driver informational page that supports your video card.
