    Video card upgrade for less than $100 (sorry i have to ask)

    Ok i had to ask. I'm upgrading my video card from a TNT2 Ultra and i want to spend less than $100. I'll almost certianly go with a used card so what should i buy at that price? I want to squeeze every pennies worth out of this $100.

    Though therefore in my weakness I slip a thousand times
    I shall not lose faith

    GeForce2 MX 400 (or maybe GTS, GF4 should lead to a price drop)
    KyroII
    Radeon 7200 (not the 7000 which should be the VE)

    You can't really go wrong with any card, especially moving from a TNT2.

    What do you have in your system and what do you do with it? It would be pointless to buy a GF3 if you have a Celeron400 and don't game very much. Throw us a bone here .

    Radeon 7500: http://www.pricewatch.com/1/37/4454-1.htm

    GeForce2Ti 64MB: http://www.pricewatch.com/1/37/4376-1.htm

    I'd get the Radeon, but either are good cards.

    MuFu.
