    I have a Hercules ProphetII GeForce2 GTS.

    Dig it!!

    That Ultra is looking schu-weeeet, but that price is kinda um, impressive too!

    Well, everyone knows that UT flies on a 3dfx board, but Q3 will fly on a GF2/U. Personally I would pick the GF2/U card, since I play more Quake engine games than Unreal engine games (with the exception to UT).

    I'd have to agree that I like the Asus v7700 a lot and it works fine in UT with det 6.18, DX8 (85) & 4.28patch (damn precaching turned off) runs smooth as at 1280x1024 32C.

    I wish Ion Storm could get of their butts and do the same for Deus Ex though

    I'm not sure I really need an Ultra as yes more speed is nice but I'd rather have glide support and Hardware FSSA, to get that largely redundant T&L engine doing something.

    I did like the Idea of the V5 6000, but it needed to be out in the shops a couple of months ago to stand much chance at the price they want for it.
