I've got an original GF256 DDR, thinking of upgrading. I can't see spending the $340+ for GF3. The two cards above list right around $140. Not too sure what the difference is and why one would be prefered over the other. Help anyone?
yes i STRONGLY recomend the geforce 2 ultra, its still the fastest card out, even beats the geforce 3 in framerates. Its only about 250$ to, which is well worth the performance. It is 250 core speed and 466 ram speed, and easilly can reach 265/500, which is just insane. Its so fast that I dont even leave it overclocked, just becuase there really isnt much of a performance gain, except when benchmarking lol.
I can show you plenty of reviews that dispute your claim that the Ultra is the fastest card and beats the GF3 in frame rates. The Ultra is a great card and might edge out the GF3 in a couple benchmarks or games, but the GF3 is by far the overall fastest video card.
