What do you guys think about...............

Recommended Posts

OK, I'm thinking about getting an ATI Xpert 98 graphics card(I don't have the money for a Voodo 3 cwm23.gif )because I saw one pretty cheap. I was wondering about how it performs. cwm13.gif

I don't know anything about this ATI, but I HIGHLY recomend the Voodoo 3. Mine cost about $100 bucks. A fair chunck of change, but highly worth it. The onboard 16mb of RAM does wonders. I highly suggest saving up a little while longer and getting one.

(Note: I do not work for 3dfx. I'm just in their pocket. biggrin.gif )

Second agreement on the Voodoo 3 here. It's lasted me for an entire year and never gave me any trouble.

For a little more you can get an ATI Radeon 32Mb. If you're lucky you can get a new one at e-bay for about $130. But, be warned, the drivers are not very good.

I don't know how this card compares to the V3, though.

I also own a V3 card and I agree with the others that have posted. The V3 can now be bought for about $70.00 US, they have been offering rebates on this card.

Well, my parents bought the card anyway cwm23.gif ,but so far it seems to work pretty well with my system. I,ve been playing WWII fighters and Sinistar:Unleased cwm24.gif BC3K works pretty good in 2D(Havent tried 3D)Oh well Thanks for the advice

BC3K will ONLY work in 2D mode for this card. For 3D acceleration, you can only use a 3dfx Voodoo type card.

Please plead with your parents to take the card back and get a better buy for the money.

Agreed. Shove this entire thread in their faces and declare how much the card sucks ass compared to what you'll get with a Voodoo 3. Unless of course you're SATISFIED with the problems you'll have in all the different games, in which case, far be from me to stop you wink.gif
