I want to buy a new computer with an Athlon processor and I'll buy a graphic card as well. Which one do you think is better? Voodoo3 3500 or TNT2 Ultra (any brand)?
As far as I know, the Voodoo3 does not support 32-bit rendering and texture larger than 256x256. Are 32-bit rendering and large texture support important? Also, it has only 16MB memory compared with the 32MB in TNT2 Ultra. Does the extra 16MB make a difference? Does it worth the extra amount of money to get that extra bit of performance?
Also, I'm quite concerned about the AGP 4x support. Do you think AGP 4x support is important in the coming 1 or 2 yrs?
I quite like the TV features of the Voodoo3 3500. I can watch TV when I do my work.
I'm still not yet decided because I want to buy a card that can yield satisfactory performance for at least 2 yrs.
