Out of these three cards which is the best?
 
Ok so i just sold my 9800 pro and for about 2 weeks i have to use one of these three cards before i can order a 6800 GT. which is the best:


ASUS V3800 32MB TNT 2 AGP
ASUS TNT2 VANTA 8MB AGP
PNY GEFORCE 2 MX 200 32MB PCI


yeah they all pretty much suck but thats all i got to choose from. :lame:

gotta go with the 32 meg agp card. first, pci sucks no matter how you slice it and that 8 meg card will get laughed off the playground, since it has a very small amount of memory.

GF2 32mb PCI is the fastest of those three

GeForce2 PCI 32MB is better than TNT AGP 32MB.

I agree with everyone else, use the Geforce 2. It may suck as well, but its still quite a bit faster than the other two.. and that 8Mb card.... eek... be carefull where you store that thing, it might make other parts slower just by being near them :D

Hey, don't knock the GF2 PCI. That card is more than capable of running Q3 at 1024x768, medium details. I know, I had one in an old rig of mine. :)

Ofcourse the GF2.. The other card eventually might cause a fried AGP port and that is not what you really want :)

Same here. My old 1.4 GHZ system didnt have any agp slots and this was the best pci card at the time...basically still is. Only difference is I had the 64MB version....running ut2k3 at 640X400....oh man...memories. From what I remember quake 3 arena ran very well with the card...I later upgraded to a radeon 9100 pci....fastest pci card to be found....until later when I got my old 2.66 GHZ machine WITH agp, I found out they had made a 5600 pci, but by then I was using a ti4200 with a sigh of relief. :::looks at sig::: i;ve come a long way since then...sniff sniff.

Anyways GF2 has my vote. But to be honest...I wouldnt even try gaming with any of those cards...i'd just put one in so u have video display and can surf the web, etc. Save the gaming for when u get the 6800 =)

Heh, from what I've heard, the 9100 PCI actually slaps the 5600 PCI around pretty good...
