Hi guys.

I have a friend who has the following hardware:

Duron 1Ghz
640 DDR ram
60G HDD
Gf4 mx 420 (on agp port)
Gagabyte MB+onboard sound
Vodoo 2 (on pci port)
Running WIN XP PRO.

I notice that he connects the Gf4 to the vodoo 2 via cable, then use the vodoo 2 as a output to the monitor.

My question is, would the vodoo 2 actually slow down performance? or can the vodoo 2 still get better/faster performance with the Gf4?(Since vodoo 2 is using pci slot and Gf4 is much newer and and assume its faster).

Vodoo 2 is anicent now.

Thanks :)

Doesn't the voodoo 2 only render in 16bit? Think that would be a quality drop :|

the voodoo2 will be slowing it down. even in sli mode i would suspect the gf4mx would be faster.

I did suspect that it will drop its performance, and told him to take it off but doesnt listen. Oh well.... Thanks anyway :)
