Janes F15 has poor D3D implementation (from the 117 patch). Anyone who says otherwise has never seen it run in glide without the 117 patch. This figured somwhat in my decision to go with a V5 vs Geforce. I previously had a TNT2 Ultra/Voodoo2 combo so I know of your card's attributes. The V2 was to support glide only games (or games that looked best in glide). F15 on my V5 at 4x FSAA has turned this into a new game for me.
The latest beta drivers have fixed the no HUD info problem at 4x FSAA in this game. Aside form this, I get 100% compatibilty with my games, AFAIK.
If you really love F15, my advice to you is get a V2 (they're cheap now) and patch to 112 only. I think that the 117 patch screws up glide API somewhat (at the expense of giving you crappy D3D).
