    V3-2k pci vs V3-3k pci if they were same price?

    On Cel 500 for flight simulators, which would you choose and why? Any other contenders for the ultimate pci board, running with say 700e - 800e?

    Voodoo 3 3000 agp all the way (well, maybe u find pci somewhere)
    The 3000-version is just 12-15 $ more expensive but better.

    Some facts:

    Voodoo 3 3000:
    128-bit 2D, 3D and video accelerator
    Voodoo3 graphics processor
    16MB high-speed SDRAM
    AGP 2x
    MPEG-1, 2 playback
    350 MHz RAMDAC
    166 Megapixels/second
    333 Megatexels per second peak fill rate
    7 Million Polygons per second peak processing
    2.66 GB per second peak bandwidth
    Patented Single-pass multi-texturing
    Other Features

    Supports resolutions up to 2046x1536
    DVD Hardware Assist
    Supports DirectX, Glide and OpenGL
    Alpha-Blending
    Single Pass, Single Cycle Bump Mapping
    Single Pass, Single Cycle Trilinear MIP-Mapping
    Programable Fog Tables
    Sub-Pixel and Sub-Texel Correction
    Gouraud Shading

    Voodoo 3 2000:

    128-bit 2D, 3D and video accelerator
    Voodoo3 graphics processor
    16MB high-speed SDRAM memory
    AGP 2x
    MPEG-1, 2 playback
    300MHz RAMDAC
    143 Megapixels/second
    286 Megatexels per second peak fill rate
    6 Million polygons per second peak processing
    2.29 GB per second peak bandwidth
    Patented Single-pass multi-texturing
    Other Features

    Supports resolutions up to 2048x1536
    DVD Hardware Assist
    Supports DirectX, Glide and OpenGL
    Alpha-Blending
    Single Pass, Single Cycle Bump Mapping
    Single Pass, Single Cycle Trilinear MIP-Mapping
    Programable Fog Tables
    Sub-Pixel and Sub-Texel Correction
    Gouraud Shading

    As you see, the 3000-version has 350 mhz RAMDAC while the 2000-version has 300.
    The 3000-version has 166 megapixels/second while the 2000 has 143 megapixels/second.
    The 3000 version has 333 Megatexels per second peak fill rate while the 2000 has 286.
    Read the rest yourself and make your choice.
    My personal choice would be the 3000 version, of course, since its faster than TNT2 Ultra but supports max 16 bit color, but that isnt anything compared to its speed!!

    Thanks for the advice--I saw a few V3-3k PCIs marked down in a local store--I'm on my way to buy one.
