I'm getting a new video card, but... Which one should I buy?
I currently have a Voodoo3 3500TV (AGP) which I bought for $167 earlier this year. I've been looking to buy a new video card that's at least a 32 megger, but I really don't want to spend over $200... Does anyone know of a good card under $200 that will be better while playing games and such than the Voodoo3 3500? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
V5500 may be quicker than the 3500 but I think the drivers need to mature a bit.And is best suited to a standard system.
GeforceDDR does fast opengl and good d3d and has a lot of drivers to pick from. And is good if you overclock.
I suppose it boils down to whether your bothered about FSAA, which the v5500 does quite well, and also the use of GLIDE.

I would go for the Matrox G400, it is a very good card. Or look at the asus v3800 - a litle bit more money - and you have video-in tv-out. Choose matrox - their tech. support is definetly better than asus.
I don't need TV or FM Out or anything... I just need a really good graphics card that will allow me to play Quake 2, Quake 3, and Halflife and a good speed on an AMD K6-2 500MHz and 128 megs of PC100 RAM.
You might want to consider a Viper II, PlunkX. It's just slightly over a hundred bucks, runs very fast, and overclocks decently well. It's not as fast as a GeForce DDR, but in most games it does have the SDR spanked.
They used to have god damn awful drivers, but recently they've actually gotten off their @$$es and made pretty good ones.
