    I've never heard of the GF2 mx64 before so that a new one on me and the Kyro II card does have some issues with the drivers but what do you use this PC for? :?:

    games, i run them the best i can. im not looking to run the new games, moh:aa, rtcw, because i know they would look like a blury slide show on my system. so i run games with expectations, knowing its limits.

    hmm, the card expert's pci is a mx200. should i go with a different brand? i was looking into the XTASY Geforce 2 MX 400 64mb by VisionTek, as well as the Verto Geforce 2 mx400 64mb by PNY. So many choices AHHHH

    Go with the MX400's as the MX200's have very poor performance. :smokin:

    i would think that my amd k6-2 550mhz would bottle neck it anyway...

    You would still get better from the MX400 than a MX200. ;)

    I still have Hercules Prophet Geforce 2 MX PCI on my other system and its a very good card for its league.

    Its great card to overclock since it has 5.5ns memory. Plays easily at 200/200 with no extra cooling (well, I have one case fan pointed to pci cards)

    I use it on PIII 700 Mhz system and best 3Dmark 2000 score is 4903 and best 3Dmark 2001 is 2263.

    Now these points might seem lousy compared to ones scored by new GF4's and 8500 with 2Ghz procs but for GF2MX(or MX400) system they are very good.

    I do not have experience from other MX cards, but Hercules Prophet MX has been very good to me.( And payed only 99Usd for one a year ago)

    Hmm I dont know about exact framerates but I play Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Medal of Honor and Max Payne at 1024x768 with 32bit colors. Details set usually where the games suggests - so medium I think. At those settings they play very well, no slowdowns or skipping.
    Of course I have 700Mhz P3 and 256Mb ram to back things up so anything less and my words might not aply...

    And naturally its easy to put any MX card on its knees with heavy detailing/high resolutions but I doubt this is what you want to do anyway.

    My 2 cents ...


    Andy

    Btw, one option - not yet mentioned here is Radeon PCI card. For example Radeon 7200 64Mb PCI gives very similar if not a bit faster gameplay than any Geforce2 MX card ...
