Ok, I've noticed that the board has been filled with nVidia vs. 3DFX flames, and I have noticed that most people, aren't giving the worthy videocards the proper credit that they deserve. I mean, a matroxg400 kicks *** so bad, I've heard, seen the benchmarks and seen it live up and running, and I've compared it to voodoo and TNT2 ultra already (I;ve seen them run on systems too) and I can say that the G400 is pretty good, besides, compared to the number of problems I've heard peopel say about Nvidia and 3DFX, I've been amazed at how few complaints have I heard form g400 owners. So what do you think>? I;'m getting a new video card now, something that is really a good deal (g400 is on top of my list). It is very well rounded unlike the two extremes, TNT2 ultra and 3DFX, Do you think I should get the card? I know I should wait for the GeForce, but it seems to premature to buy one now, probably when they have an ultra version. :-)

I would like to know what makes you think that the TnT 2 is not a well rounded chipset. Excellent picture quality, incredible speed (2d and 3d), good price, 32 megs, 32-bit color, and good drivers. What well rounded mean to you?
I read an article on the firing squad that Matrox "finally" got their act together in regards to openGL drivers that absoultely kicks TNT2U's ***...can you say 100fps in q2 @ 1024x768 (ah well i forget, if i can find the link i will post)
And yes I own a CL TNT2U card and I love it, but...

maybe I'm behind the times, but my humble TNT (not 2 or ultra) is doing just fine. Being as to how my poor eyes/brain doesn't see the difference between 40 and 90fps, I didn't feel the need to buy the latest and greatest. When the game slow down noticibly, I'll consider a new card. I fin't that software rarely keeps up with hardare.
