no sence in buying a geforce 3 ! there the same damn speed !!!! i saw a geforce 3 with only 4ns ram!!!thats the same as an ultra, now thats what i call a pointless wast of money
Umm.. There is the MINOR issue of the fact that the GPU is a far more advanced unit. But I see where you are coming from, a Celeron 800 is just as fast as an Athlon 800 as long as the memory is the same speed. NOT!
get a gf 3 in the fall or a kyro II now. cheap[150 for between gf 2 pro and gf2 ultra performance], perform really well. specs may seem low but check out benchmarks. No performance drop between 16bit and 32bit....no card can beat that. only problem is no hardware T&L....that will come in kyro III....
the preview with beta drivers is at:
I just built my new system and put in an Elsa Gladiac Ultra. Ahh man that is one nice card.
I'm getting 3912 in 3DMark2001 with the Detonator 10.80s on a 1.2GHz Athlon. And the best part is it's only $250 at www.newegg.com. That is a steal. I can give you more information if you need it. Elsa is a great company for GeForce's.
