Suggest a video card...
Posted 29 September 2001 - 09:44 AM
I am going to break down and buy a new video card but I have no need to buy one of the $200 dollar game mongor cards. I sometimes play MS Flight Sim but most of what I do is messing with apps and surfing the web. Not much of a game player. Although there will be probably 100 diff. suggestions, thought I would throw this out anyway before I make the plunge. To sum it up...looking for a lower priced, quality vid card.

I can check computershopper.com but do you guys have a trusted site with good price on the ATI Radeon AIW?

I use an ATI Radeon 64mb DDR, great for games and DVD, and its about £170 so maybe you might go for this card instead?

Then again, the new ATI Radeon 7500 retails for £199 looks ok, and it does outperform its direct competitor the GeForce 2 Pro. But I think you should honestly look at the new GeForce 3 with its attached features and qualities.

I wouldn’t personally go ATi now, perhaps you could try an Nvidia GeForce 3 Ti Mx which should be out really soon.[/quote:2fea350d34]
Rick did say that "I have no need to buy one of the $200 dollar game mongor cards."

I don't play many games but lately I have been playing the hell out of the RtCW multiplayer test which is based on the Quake III Arena engine and it is SWEET looking on this card with all the high quality stuff turned ON @ 800x600.
If you don't want to spend $200 USD on a a video card that you're not going to spend a lot of time playing games on but that'll do it anyway then maybe you shold try one.
I found them on ht*p://www.pricewatch.com for [b:c5bac620d7][u:c5bac620d7]$39[/u:c5bac620d7][/b:c5bac620d7] for the SAME model I bought for $65 locally. Do a search for "AOpen PA3000+" (or w/o the + for other models) and you'll see.

I don't play games, but I do need graphic's rendering a little.
Who knows which Card will do both Games & Rendering.
Just tell me about any good card, exept Corporate one for $£2000.
I have Hercules Prophit II Ultra 64MB. I've been said when I bought it 6 months ago, that it's the best for rendering(and a little gameing)

Does anyone have handy the maximum resolution from the GeForce 3 cards?
