    stock yes, overclocked, midrangish, also with asking this after ATI's know one has been unvealed kinda throws it and all GF3s down the list, while they still run the games right, if ur looking for a new card cuz of performance adn stuff i'd wait, cuz if u got the best right now, by the time a game was made to use it, there would be 2 newer cards that would kill the purchase u made.


    overall u should really just save the cash up for a dual channel ddr mobo and 478 P4 CPU.

    i get about the same 3dmark score as u on my athlon system and it runs games fine, best thign u can do is read in ur manual or ask another P4 user how to adjust ur memory speed to 133mhz(not fsb)

    Look at my sig mutch. my card rocks! and for the price i got it, it's the shiznit! Waiting to get a gf4, but for now, i'm very happy with it!

    I got the this card cuz the gf4 was too expensive for me at the time. All and all, it's a great card. My games are awsome. I gotta admit, with this board and the ram i have, i've got it to it's max. i know once i get my new mobo, ddr ram, i'll get a better score in 3Dmark and the gf4 will drop even further in price .

    Either Ti4200 or Ti4600

    Does voodoo suck???
    yes

    Did it suck when it was new
    Hells no, that ish was the bomb.....

    highs.... mids.... lo's.....

    geforce3 is at the mids i would say....

    its all about how much money you got and if you are willing to wait for that next generation or blow it all now..... or wait and buy the cheaper one.....

    geforce 3's didnt have much time to perform i do believe.... they were quickly overwhelmed by the 8500's and the g4's

    Well, yeah, it's two generations old. The GF4's are current now, and at the end of their product life....few more months the next generation will be out.

    Not too unlike asking if a Pentium II is classed low end CPU now.

    Credit Cards are evil.

    I am $26,000 in debt because of them, better not to use one.

    Hey, look on the bright side... at least you don't have my setup. I have an ECS motherboard with NO AGP slot! It has the SiS 630/730 chipset and just plain sucks... (serves me right for buying a premade computer off TV, but still). I'm kinda looking for a decent video card that is designed for a PCI slot... any suggestions would be welcome...
