Okay, might as well go down and list specs first. This computer is a Dell Dimension 4100, and here are the specs:
Intel 815 Chipset
Pentium III 733Mhz
Currently TNT 2 M64 Card
SB Live OEM
128 Megs of ram
2 harddrives, 10(primary) 15(Secondary)
Now, I am faced with a new problem, it's no longer the lower end card, but I now have the option to choose a high end up to 300 buck (which rules out the GeForce 2 Ultra) card. Now, I am sort of torn between getting an ATI Radeon 64 Meg DDR, or a GeForce 2 GTS on a Asus V7700 64 meg DDR board. If given the option, what would you people choose? Which one is better for gaming?
From past experience, ATI's card are mostly trouble. If you're going for the last ounce of strength, go for the Asus V7700. You're getting the GeForce, and solid performance. With ATI, you won't maximize your cards potential and possibly face driver troubles. I sure did! Check out the specs on these cards at Tomshardware.com and Sharkyextreme.com etc etc and see for yourself. ATI's cards are not really top choice.

Yeah but that Radeon just whoops the GTs *** in high res 32Bit 1600x1200 and with way higher image quality!
I am nvidia guy but the ATI rocks now so i have to give it a try! I have TNT2 U now nad want a Readeon so bad that i am willing to work hard to get it. By the way as long you got latest drivers for the ATI there will be no problems no more and for sure you will get higher FPS in high res than that GTS 64MB
WTF?? I am just trying to help OK!
save up a bit more and wait till christmas time and get the new generation of cards

Anyway, the question about 32 MB and 64 MB. 64 MB is better but only in the sense that it can handle higher resolutions better. If you usually play your games at 1024 x 768 then the 32 MB will serve you well. But if you usually play at 1280 x 1024 of higher then you're going to need the 64 MB version.
How big is your monitor and what's the maximum resolution?
? Quantum Physics ? Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
My screen size is 17 inch, and the max resoluation that I can handle, it can go to 1240x480, but at 60Hz, and that bothers my eyes, so the max I go to is 1024x768, and normally, it's only set at 16 bit, except in games.
