    Video Card Purchase Query

    Im thinking up buying a new video card as my voodoo2 is getting old.

    I have AMDK2-3D 300MHz with 128MB ram and am running win2000, likely to update hole system in the next couple of months though.

    Im Running 3D studio max and lots of other graphical programs, plus games and would like to buy a really good card..not too sure, i have been reading posts and i was leaning to the geforce cards??

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Since I have never owned an AMD K-x system, I wouldn't be a good source of info. Yes the Geforce may be good for you, but I have a feeling you may want to lean toward a flavor of V3. Just MHO though.

    What card do you have in your system now?
    Asus P9X79-Deluxe, Intel i7 3930k @ 4.2Ghz, 16gb DDR3-1600 Kingston HyperX Memory, Coolermaster Storm Trooper case, Corsair AX850 psu, Zotac 970 GTX 4gB SLI, Corsair Model H100 w/c, Samsung 840 Pro 512gB SSD, Asus Blu-ray Writer 12x, Windows7 Pro x64

    MSI GS Series GS60 Ghost-003 Gaming Notebook 15.6", Intel Core i7-4700HQ 2.40GHz, 16GB Memory 1TB HDD 128GB SSD, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 2GB, 4.36 lbs.

    The current card i have is a
    Diamond Moster 3DII, but this is not fully supported under win2000.

    The system im buying this card for will likely be a pentIII chip as i will update with that, not another AMD chip

    Oh!

    IMO, I would go with a geforce/2; I have had both a tnt1 and tnt2u; both cards are good (and the geforce/2 are better).

    3dfx seems to be regurgitating their h/w until the Rampage comes out later down the line.
