OpenGL assumes that you have a decent video card, as it was intended from the beginning to be run as much as possible by the hardware. So, yes, you probably need a new video card. There''s lots of cheap ones out there that are good enough for OpenGL. NVidia''s TNT2 (it''s kind of old, but had great OpenGL support for its time) is really cheap now. NVidia''s Geforce2 MX is also pretty cheap, and gives great performance, as well as supporting OpenGL very well.

I used to have a rage IIc as well. I couldn''t even get it to run OpenGL programs. Yes, you should probably get a new vid card. A TnT2, Rage Fury Pro, Geforce MX, or a Radeon will do fine.
