Video Purchase Time

It's about that time and the birthday is coming up. I've had my GEFORCE 2 MX for about a year and a half now and have been very happy with it. But it's 2002 and you can buy really nice video cards for a really good price. I've been pricing them over the net and reading reviews and it's come down to 2.

ATI VS. NVIDIA

I've heard the ATI RADEON 8500 is a really good video card. But I might want to stay in the Nvidia family and go with Geforce3 TI-200. I'd really like the TI-500 or the All in Wonder 8500, but I don't think I can get apporval from the wife :)

So let me know your views...

I would grab the GeForce 4 sure man ....

NVidia chipsets rock ...............


If you wait till the GeForce 4 to be released in the next 4 weeks or so..... you will pick up a Geforce 3 for about $100 cheaper

No point in me upgrading my vid card until I upgrade my cpu, which won't be any time soon.

Get a ASUS Geforce3 Ti500 or MORPHEUS Geforce Ti500. You dont want them go for the GeForce2 Ti200 which is better than the Geforce3 Ti200 for some reason. :cool:

Radeon 8500 so much cheaper

I just noticed this....Radeon 8500 is a LOT cheaper than Geforce 3 ti500 AND(according to worldwide 3dmark scores)it is better.....Pricewatch.com's cheapest Raedeon 8500 is 166 USD and G3ti500 is 269 USD...big diff there....

Just wanted to update all....
I ended up going with the ASUS V8200T2 Geforce 3 TI-200 pure. I saw the deluxe, but I knew I wouldn't use all the other gadgets.(video out, tv-out, 3d-glasses etc) the only thing I really want for overclocking was the heat sinks on the memory. So I went out and spent the extra 9 bucks for heat sinks and installed them myself. I'm currently running the card at 215/485 and it's running great!!! Thank-you all for your comments..

P.S.-- E.P.- the nvidia 2.3.1.2 drivers run great, no lock up problems what so ever...:D

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
