View Full Version : Which value videocard do you suggest?
October 11th, 2001, 05:29
I'm thinking of upgrading my old TNT2 and I wanted to ask which card performed better, an Nvidia GeForce 2 MX or an ATi Radeon VE. I would like some opinions from the people here who have used or are using the cards. Currently I have my mind set on the Radeon VE. Is it a good choice?

You should get gainward GF2 MX400 the vivo version you should check this monster very overclockable and also its performance is very close to geforce 2 GTS it got 4ns memory(i think) next choice is asus but pretty expensive

I say you cant beat a geforce 3, well but thats only a mear $400:rolleyes:

now if buying a geforce3 was an option, then he would have asked now.. wouldn't he?:rolleyes:

Hmm, so you all think I should get a GeForce 2 MX then? It's just that I found a Radeon VE card that's selling for $99 CDN (which would translate to exactly $63.12 US). I thought it was a pretty good deal, just wanted to know if it was worth getting

GeForce2 Pro isn't not bad choice to chose.You will gain much more perfermance than GeForce2MX400.

it kicks the pants of a Geoforce 2 MX and is very cheap.

Thank you for all your suggestions. I've decided to go with a GeForce 2 GTS ($169 CDN, advertised as a GTS but is actually a Pro). It was somewhat pricier than the Radeon VE I was planning for but I guess it pays off in the long run. :)

Be glad you didn't get the VE, it's a severely castrated Radeon..

GeForce GTS is becoming cheap just add a few buck over the mx400 and you can get one or if you have some money you can go for GeForce 3 Ti200 a slightly cheaper GF3
