Are there any Ge-Force video cards that will fit into a PCI slot these days? Any names of products and links of where to buy them would be kool!
Thanks,
Josh

Like Wiggo said, there used to be some gf2MX cards, but it's been a while since I've seen one too. Check out eBay or the online store list <a href="http://forums.tweaktown.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=975" target="_blank">here</a>. I know that Jaton are one of the companies that make / made these cards though.

They seemed to have disappeared when the MX200/400's came out for some reason but several of the places that I buy from had them but soon dropped from sight. The Hercules Kyro's are the only PCI cards that I can find now that have any performance but they are known to have some compatability issues with them. :smokin:

I won a HP prebuilt computer in an online competetion. Its a P3-800 and it has 18MB onboard memory but it slows down the computer a great deal. Casue the stupid custom MoBo doesnt have an AGP slot im lookin around for a half decent PCI video card. Thanks Beefy ill have a look on ebay!

Well PCI cards generally suk ( i would know i have one). I also had to take time to find a PCI card cos my POS gateway board had no AGP slot. Eventually i bought a TNT2 model 64, and it performed about as well as the onboard 8meg Riva128. gamedude sells MX400's in PCI, however they are more expensive and dont perform as well. If i were you i would look into a matrox card. The 3D performance of the G550 is equivalent to that of an AGP Geforce 2, and the 2D performance is much better, and it also has a PCI interface

PCI cards may suck when compared to AGP ones but they beat the **** out of most onboard video options. :devil:

Oh I found some PCI GF2MX400 64MB cards at Zone Computing (http://www.zonecomputing.com.au/). ;)

I suggest the VisionTek Xtasy GeForce4 MX 420. It has 64MB SDRAM and it kicks the crap out of the 16MB Voodoo 3 2000 I was using. :p

I have a GF2 32MB (PCI)...its does the job when playing CS...but i got it on a P3 933, 512 SDRam and got a 810 in my 3dmark...so in other words don't spend too much on it..if its gonna be a PCI card.: peace2:

Elsa Geforce2 based "Gladiac 511 PCI"

I have one and I love it.. but I am about to switch to AGP...

Pro's: great 3D and very functional. Twin display and S-Video out.

Con's: the company just burnt out.. so software updates dont come easy...

decent write-up on it @

PNY do a PCI GeForce4 MX420. I've just bought one but not installed it yet, I need a 35W power supply to run it. They are at www.pny.com

one thing to remember with pci videp cards is if u have a geforce or better, disable hardware TnL...this is bcos hardware TnL uses lotsa PCI/AGP bandwidth...:cheers:

ok im not realy sure but when i bought my g-force card in the manual it said somthing about the cards being desinged for agp or pci so i would be led to think that this company makes both??
im not to sure cause ive never seen one but what you got to loose by checking right?? ok im talking about the gianward cards so i would check it out you never know??? hope this helps..........

The chip could be used in either form though very few manufacturers bothered producing the PCI version. :smokin:
