  • Good card?

    http://www.pcconnection.com/scripts/...duct_id=303154

    I already get 70 FPS in Q3 which is what I play the most, but in SS:SE I get about 20 and that's at the lowest res/details. I don't want to spend more than $200. My current card is a Geforce256 32 MB (OEM).

    Edit: in the UT2k3 demo I get 30 FPS when not too much is going on, and that's at 640x480

    Not really.

    64MB of ram isn't that much.

    Waste of $, imo.

      Product name says 128 MB...although granted I don't see that in the specs.

              Just saying it's sketchy to have that card listed at 128 but the real mem is listed in the specs...

                I've used http://www.directron.com/silurogf4.html it is a 128mb card i'm guessing they just copied the specs from the 64mb version.

                        Check out NewEgg.

                        They're 500% beter than PC Connection.
                        And have better prices.

                        Brands that are worth buying for a GeForceX card:

                        LeadTek
                        PNY
                        Gigabyte
                        Gainward
                        Abit
                        Asus

                        Stay away from brands you haven't hard about before. They usually have dodgy warranties.

                        I have a LeadTek GeForce3 Ti200 - 128mb card. I got it at NewEgg - for like $150 in May.

                        I have no problems with it -- no problems playing high graphic games, etc.

                        Stay away from MX cards - they're crap.
