    Talking Video Card Guys!!!!!!!

    Well I dunno If I should look at this as a good or bad thing. But my Viper II Graphic card stop making drivers therefore it is uncompatible in XP

    So If I wanna play games in XP, Im gonna need a new card.

    Heres what Id like

    Under $220

    GOTTA get good fps In counter-strike, Quake III, and Unreal.


    And most important of all, WINDOWS XP COMPATIBLE!!!!!!!!!! and they actaully UPDATE There drivers!!!!


    Thanks guys!

    Geforce 2 Ultra 64MB overclock it as much as you can.. that card is well below 200$

    Or another choice is the Radeon 8500... Its about as fast if not faster than a GF2 Ultra but cost a lil more.. You never know ATI might acctually make a set of drivers that take advantage of the card and it may eventually become super fast!

    GF2 Ultra = 130$ to 160$ shipped

    Radeon 8500 = 190$ to 220$ shipped

    Look on www.newegg.com they have great prices as well as VERY good service!

    for one it's not in stock at the moment, and If I spend that kinda' money on a graphics card then I don't wanna buy a POS..

    mind you it's not a $399 GF3 but it's more than I kind of want to spend..
    but it looks to me like a hell of a deal..
    but then again who am I?
    I don't know much about graphics cards..so I need to get informed for when I do decide to go out and buy one..

    how does it compare to the rest of the GF 3 crowd ( don't think Brent has reviewed this one yet)
    and most importantly how does it compare to the POS GF2 GTS w/32DDR I have?

    I'll recommend the LeadTek GF3 Ti200 if you're into tweaking and overclocking cuz it has an onboard temp, voltage, and fan RPM monitor + the biggest heatsink/ramsink of any card out there. Price is about $30 or so more than other Ti200's tho. Depends on what you want. If you go on pricewatch, the cheapest Ti200 is only $164
