  1. Which card is better, Geforce 2 mx, or voodoo3 3000

    I have a got two old video cards lying around to go in my second PC, It has got a voodoo3 2000 in it at the mo, but can have either a Geforce 2 200mx with 64mb or a voodoo3 3000, which one will give the best performance in games such as Unreal tourney or Quake 3???

    I have also got latest win2k drivers for all cards so driver problems are not a question.

    If I were to choose, I would take the GeForce 2 MX...

    Here's a quote from one of the reviews of a Geforce 2 MX:
    This is from Guru 3D, and this is my opinion. If you want to do some research yourself, go take a look here. Guru 3D

    Goodluck.

    Only because of how far along detonator drivers have come would I tip my hat towards the Geforce. Image quality is top notch with the Voodoo.

    UT will run better with your Voodoo3 - Quack quack prolly with your MX - which is more important to you?

    If that is your second PC then what are you doing with your main one? Why couldn't you just play games with it?

    I also agree with the others in that the GeForce 2MX is probably better and more overclockable.

    I use it for network gaming against the newer PC

    I think for network game playing go with Geforce

    Good idea..
    I'm a major NVidia fan.
    Their cards are awesome (graphics wise), dramitically overclockable, and keep up to date trying to make them better no matter how old they are with the drivers and such.
    Anyhow, I just like them.

    I would stick with the GF too, you can't get drivers for the Voodoo anymore except from 3rd parties. With the frequency that Nvidia updates their drivers, it is a clear cut choice to me.

    The GeForce 2MX would be better for the simple reason there has been continued driver support.
