I'm building an AMD T-bird 1GHz and somebody told me the RADEON chipset was better for AMD and GeForce was better for Intel. Is this true? Which should I buy for my AMD?

honestly ,it doesnt really matter , with that processor you will get just about the max out of any video card , but I have a gf2 mx and I think it does great , its up to you

The geforce will be faster in 16bit but they are about level in 32bit, also the radeon has envioronment bump mapping as well. Plus dvd playback is better on the radeon so if those features matter go for that, depending on the price you can get them for though I would probabally go for the Geforce 2 or wait and see if a Geforce 3 mx comes out
