    Like always money is not an issue

    I was wondering which card would give me better graphics and performance

    Nvidias Riva-TNT2 32mb
    or Voodoo3 2000 16mb\

    I have 64mb pc-100 ram on a celeron 500

    With a Celeron 500 and 64MB of RAM, I'd put my money on the V3 3000 (only like $15 more than the 2000).

    The only thing the TNT2 gains you over the Voodoo3 is 32bit colors (and larger texture size but I haven't noticed much of a difference there for UT), and that is at the expense of speed. There's a pretty big hit for it. If you're looking for an inexpensive upgrade I'd wait a month or two and pick up a GeForce DDR, prices should start dropping with the release of the GeForce2.

    I would recommend against the MaxiGamer Xentor32 if you go with a TNT2 card. I've noticed major overheating problems with that board that pretty much causes UT to crash. I now have my machine opened up with a fan on the board to keep this from happening.

    If money is not an issue, I would wait for the Geforce2. I know, I know. The whole "waiting for technology" game... :)

    You don't have to wait for the GeForce2 if you don't mind spending $350 for a vid. card. Elsa's Gladiac GeForce2 is already out.
