    The 9700Pro is currently the fastest card available - & from the reveiws I've seen, just about every mfg'er makes a good one (with the same clocks) so price and availability should be the determining factor
    the next nVidia card should beat the Radeon by a considerable margin - but it hasn't been released yet - and depending on who you listen too, may not be in stores until sometime between Jan and Mar 03.
    the GF4Ti4600 is still a very fast card - and the prices have been dropping lately - so that may be a option for you as well

    Your problem could also be caused by the drivers. Head over to http://www.guru3d.com/files/ as they have a large selection of nVidia drivers and one just may cure your problem. ;)

    gowith their suggestions.....they are exactly what u should do :)

    as for buying new vid card......

    wait for NV30...... :) that's all I got to say.

    the Gef3 is a decent card in itself........ im sure u can still pull it off......

    note i am using a voodoo5 still.......i can wait :).......for NV30 (when Crucial or Gainward/Leadtek release it.....)

    It depends. If you truly cannot wait till the NV30 comes out and drops in price a bit get the Radeon. But if you don't NEED it right away wait till the NV30 :thumb:
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.
