Now's a good time to buy a new vid card with the advent of the GE Force 3 & 4 out, the previous high dollar cards are dirt cheap. Time to upgrade for pennies on the dollar. Remeber the latest is always tomorrows bargain.

What do you run now?

Here's one, AGP, 3-D, Open GL blah, blah
This one is also Linux compatible.

I know what you mean. I just removed a 16mb ATI, that was a pretty good card awhile back. The card I linked to is a great buy (using it now) good 3-D, supporting 32 bit display and fast (AGP).

*complains* I don't have an AGP slot on my computers. Pieces of crap... actually they aren't but I'll still complain.

Well they also have a PCI equivalent, not quite as fast, but a good buy.

Would an extra $50.00 help you remember? <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_razz.gif">

It's the PNY one. The 128 PNY GF4 PCI came out so this one is on sale and I (of course) get a discount on it already. It is currently selling for $69.99 before rebate and $49.99 after. I get it for $49.99 before rebate and $29.99 after. I just don't even have that much money to spend on it right now.

If anyone sends me $100 I'll buy it and ship it for you guys. :-)
