Very old games often have graphical issues with new GPUs, i've had that several times. Never found a solution really...

Extension limit.. I know I did a research on that when I bought my bro's GT240..
As far as I remember, it was somewhat related to Anisotropic filtering. But I'm not sure, and if so, I don't remember how.

Doesn't the tooltip say?

EDIT: Here you go:

Driver Extension Limit
Note: This option is only applicable to OpenGL games!

In OpenGL, a so called Driver Extension String is used to describe all the features the graphic card is supporting.

Unfortunately, this string has grown really huge on the latest generation of graphic cards. Some games can't cope with the length of this string and crash.

You can use this setting to limit the extension string.
