Re: Card recommendations
performance for price the 49 dollar geforce3 is the best. however if i were you i would look at one of the 128 mb models. (ti4200 and ti4800) These cards are a downgrade from the 9600 pro but will have better driver support and should be more stable.
also to note: i have a radeon 9800 pro in my dual p3 1133 tualatin board(via 815 chipset) and it runs flawlessly. I do have to run it in 2x mode alot of the time though to keep it stable.(radeon 9600 pro can't run in 2x, 3.3v mode) 3dmark 2003 score is 52xx in agp 2x mode which indicates that ati cards do run pretty well in older systems.
