Nice scores ! With G3 Ultra you will probably get around 8000 - 10000 . G3 is like G2 in 3dmark2000 . With G2 you got ~6000. With Ultra you get 8000~10000 . So I think its safe to assume, when G3 Ultra comes out we should expect scores in 3Dmark2001 to be around 8000-10000 .
Personally I will wait for G3Ultra or ever G4 . Right now I don't see any reasons to upgrade my G2Ultra.

Why did you sell your Geforce 2 ultra? Did you just do it for the benchmark becuase really there isn't a game around that is anywhere close to pushing the limits of the geforce2 ultras. Maybe its just the poor college kid in my but damn, thats a lot of cash to get better benchmark numbers.

But in the end isn't that what we all do it for? I mean how many of us actualy game?? and yet atleast 50% of us have an ultra or better :)
