the guy he's right man.I got the same card like you, I have the money for the G-force 3 Ti200 but I want to wait another month, maybe the prices will go down with the new G-force coming up, and I'll buy a G-force 3 Ti500 .we'll see about that.
ATI isn't taking over anything.The GeForce 4 will beat anything ATI can produce.Nvidia has a more reliable product.(and why were the drivers that were released with the Radeon 8500 cooked to run better Quake benchmarks?)
If you're stuck with a crappy celeron chip like me, I wouldnt bother going much higher than a gf2 gts or something similar. I'd upgrade the cpu first. Define a tonne of money? In my mind, anything over $250 Canadian for a graphics card just to get some more fps is crazy but I guess people out there have alot more money to burn than I do. If you're a gamer and have some money to burn then go for the gf3 or gf4.
well personnaly ill be upgrading to the radeon8500 from gf2MX until september where ill buy the new R300 hehehe directx9 pixel shader 2.0 and vertex S 2.0 also lol bring on unreal 2 and doom 3 LOL heheeh i know iknow i have money to spend lol
