    Which Card ?

    I have a cyrix 233 cpu and txpro motherbaord with onboard sound and video that wil never suport direct x.

    Which card would be best for my system ? and what about direct x concerns such as if i bought a 3d only card would there be problems with my original card not supporting direct x ?

    I live in Australia and curently the Voodoo 2 12 mb by creative is selling at retail for $499 AUS. What a god damn joke not to mention the lesser known cards such as the Maxi Gammer Phoenix sells for $400

    I have no idea what to get and dont want to waste money. Is it possible to order from the US ?

    You'd be getting ripped off if you baught that Voodoo2.
    I bought a Creative Voodoo2 16Mb before Christmas for a friend of mine, and I picked it up, fully boxed with free games and all the extras, for $270.
    I'm living in Melbourne (Australia), so if you want to know where about's I get my stuff from kurtcobain, just send me an email.
    Don't worry, it's all legit.

    Whoa! Sorry, my fault. I misunderstood you then. The card I got for my friend was actually a Creative Banshee 16Mb for $270. I'm sure you could get a cheaper price on the Creative Voodoo 2 still.

    Buy a new system!

    You would need:
    Mothewrboard (FIC VA-503+ Rev.1.2)
    Sound Card (PCI 128 or Live)
    Vidio card (Voodoo3 or Savage4)

    You should also get:
    64 meg PC-100 SDRAM
    K6-3 450

    Like I said, get a new system!
    AMD Phenom II x4 945 3Ghz | ASUS M4A77TD | 2X WD 1TB SATA 2 hard drive | 2x2GB Corsair XMS3 | nVidia GeForce 8800 GTS | ATI TV Wonder Theater Pro 550 | Antec P-160 case | Antec 650w Earth Watts | LG Blu-ray Super Drive | LG DVD RW | Windows 7 Pro
