I would hold off on buying a video card until the fall refresh if you can at all handle it... GF3's should be very reasonable by then.

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.
