    Stay away from the DDR MX boards, as 64bit DDR is slower than 128bit SDR. My personal favorite is the Leadtek Winfast Geforce 2 MX DH PRO. It sports dual vga outputs, tv out, oversized golden active HSF, hardware monitoring, and the list goes on. Check it out at www.leadtek.com

    I recommend the Elsa GladiacMX (mine) or the Hercules Prophet (faster memory as default, better overclocking)

    Well, the BEST GeForce 2 MX is the retail Hercules 3D Prophet II MX due to it's faster memory (183Mhz, opposed to other MXs that have 166Mhz memory).

    I forgot to add, it aint the best if you need TV-out...

    Tv-Out...mmmm.. It can be Optional...

    What I REALY NEED.. is a company with Great Costumer Support like Creative, A company that would not be sell to another company like (3dfx), great Drivers... and a little bit of Overclocking.

    Hey, K6-III,

    I was interested to buy that card (leadtek winfast mx2 dh pro), but it wasnt offered anywhere within 5 hours from my area.

    I was wondering, is there an adjustment tab just like in the ATI's? You know, where you have these arrows that lets you adjust the horizontal/vertical frequencies, and like ATI's they tell you what the frequencies are.
