Thread: would i notice

    would i notice

    if i upgraded my video card from a TNT2 M64 32 MB to a Gforce2 MX 32 MB ?

    I am also looking at a Gforce2 Ti MX 32 MB which i am guessing would be the best for less than $100.00

    i woudl be using it for watching DVDs, playing a few games... probably some other stuff - like viewing web pages.

    shit yeah -- thats like 2-3x more powerful. I noticed big time when I went from a TNT 1 to a GeForce 1 - DDR

    Hey,

    I get everywhere, no where is safe j/k ;D

    I have both a TNT2 & a GeForce2 mx & I must agree that the GeForce is a significantly more powerful card.

    The major differences include~

    Higher core speed.
    Higher memory speed.
    Hardware T&L support (makes a big difference IMHO).

    I think the GeForce2 mx is a great card, very cheap & runs great (I have been playing "Return to Castle Wolfenstein" with no problems on a Duron 750).

    However I have had identical DVD quality / performance & the general picture quality looks similar to me on the TNT2.

    In conclusion if the games you play are lagging on the TNT2 then the GeForce2 mx would be a great budget upgrade, however I don't think you will notice any great increase in 2D image quality.

    Regards

    Eddy

    The GeForce II MX would be awesome. That's what I have, and it delivers wonderful performance. And for less than a hundred bucks, it's a steal.

    The Ti would be even better as it is their newer technology and I am under the understanding that it runs far better than the old technology. The Ti chipset is giong to be the standrad soon. On the other hand you should also get great bang for your buck with a MX as well (why go with 32mb though when the 64's are about the same price). I agree with all the other posts that it is a big step up from the TNT

    I picked up a gforce2 MX 400 with 64 MB of memory for a $75. I have to agree with Eddy - it works great!! It also has identical DVD quality, but that is not bad at all. thanks all

    Good Deal! They have them for $65 at newegg but you would have had to pay shipping.
