    I have a dilemna

    Right now I have a geforce2 MX. I am really unpleased with this card. I just got about $170 for christmas and am trying to decide what card I should get.
    1) Voodoo5 $170
    2) Radeon DDR $150 or so
    3) KYRO 64 mb $140

    The voodoo5 is what i used to have and liked it very much. I just find myself questioning whether or not I should buy it what with the current situation. The radeon is good I hear, I just need some verification that I would see a performance/image quality boost. The kyro, I just threw in for the hell of it, since this 64 mb version is only $140. Im nervous about buying it because of support and compatability tho. Any opinions?

    The KYRO is already out?

    I think I would get the Radeon, if nothing else, because you know they wont go out of business.

    I'd keep the MX and wait about 2-3 months for the Radeon64 or something else to get down to 150-175.

    The reason is that you aren't making a major upgrade with any of those cards and will be right back at it again in a few months anyway.

    The MX is great as far as I can tell and I am running it on a K6-3+. Not a T-bird and it still does well in any of my games.

    Where'd you get that coupon? I just scoured through their site and couldn't find anything about it, and I plan on buying a Radeon soon.
