Either a Radeon 64mb DDR VIVO $149
or
GeForce 2 Pro 64mb $137

what is faster and i know that VIVO i can play and watch on my monitor or my TV, but my puter in in my bedroom and wont be near a TV as long as im in this house so do i really need the VIVO option plus- i hear you gotta tweak the Radeon also and they dont have as many drivers? What do ya think

I think the Geforce is faster but the visual quality is a step behind the Radeon. Personably I would get the Geforce, I have had great luck with mine. If you do cad, ProE or something like that, then the Geforce is the best choice since you can mod it to a Quadro card.

Geforce if you are a gaming nut, like I can be. radeons look good, and for other (video features)purposes they far surpass the geforce lineup.
