Yes, the GeForce 2 Ultra is a very fast card....pretty comparable to the GeForce 3 in current games, even edges out the GeForce 3 in many current games such as Unreal Tournament, and Quake 3. The GeForce 3 will be better in tomorrows Direct X 8 based games and on up....but the GF2U is still a potent card.

It depends on the price! ;) once we know the price of the card, from wherever you're buying it from, then we'll tell you if it's good or not ;)

but it's good...lol

Get the GF3 Ti200 instead if you're gonna get the ultra cuz they're about the same price but the GF3 is wayy faster and has way more featres
