Default 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.

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.

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

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...
