    Recommend a Video Card


    Hi! I am gonna buy a Celeron 333 processor with an ASUS P2B motherboard (Intel 440BX chipset).

    I am new to video cards and would like to know which video card should I invest in ? I love to play Quake II :-) And which viedo card(s) should I avoid?

    How much video memory do you recommend?

    Many thanks and best wishes for the holiday season!

    I love my Diamond Monster 3DII. I have 8MB ram on it , but get the 12MB for future games.I understand the Riva 550 TNT is a good choice also.

    Get a 16MB TnT based card. I would avoid Savage 3d. S3 even admits that there are problems with the card. TNT allows high resolutions with a beautiful visual quality. And Shiner, it doesn't work right with Unreal, because Unreal only natively supports 3dfx Glide and PowerVr. The directx and openGL patches are crap.
