    Default graphics cards...

    Hi,
    i'm after a video card that will play games like Quake 3, MOH:AA, etc
    I'm on a tight budget, but i've found these 4 that i'd be prepared to pay for, could you guys reccomend which one is the best, (they're ranked in cheapest to dearest)

    1. AGP 32mb TNT2 Ultra with TV out (will this play games like Q3??)
    2. G-Force 2 MX400 32 MB
    3. Leadtek Winfast GeForce 256 32Mb SDRAM
    4. Asus V6600 Geforce 32MB

    wot are #'s 3, and 4 - are they liek Geforce 1, came out before GF2 or something?
    Also, the TNT2 ultra - is this teh best TNT available?
    thanks for help

    Fergie,

    I'm not a graphics card expert, but I can say that the TNT2 won't compare with the other three - the GeForce has always been better than the TNT.

    I've played both on my TNT2 32mb card. They both play fine, but you generally need to have the graphics set to low etc.

    Since then i've upgraded to GeForce4! ]
    Now I can have all high settings

    Cheers

    If your on a budget, a good low specs card (By todays newer card standards) woud be the GeForce MX440. 64MB I think, roughly $100 (Check Pricespy).

    I've heard it does quite well, but not used it myself.

    Cheers

    Even on a tight budget, why buy a Geforce2 MX for $100 when you could get a GeForce4 MX for $150- $200? Well worth the extra $50 bucks or so.

    Check it out at pricespy

    What cpu and how much ram have you got?

    No point putting a fast graphics card in a slow machine - unless it isn't gonna cost you any more

    Looking at pricespy the best cheap bargin looks like:

    GeForce2 MX400 64Mb AGP $99

    If the PC can't handle a GeForce4 MX (which is not the same as an expensive Ti model), what's the point in playing MOHAA anyhow?

    Spending money now on a GeForce2 just seems like a waste of money.

    Why not listen to anybody? I don't recall anyone saying that a GF2 wouldn't work - they were saying that the money would be better spent on a newer model (sounds logical to me).

    PS Did you really need to use that as your username?

    You said you were looking for a budget card, how budget is your budget. Surely burce's suggestion would be better off for you in the lond run. Expecially if you're gonna try out games like UT2K3 and that battlefield 1942 or something, that are apparently real GC Hungry! Just make sure your proccessor is upto it, otherwise you could be finding yourself doing a MB upgrade before long!
