Solved Is the GeForce3 still a good series of vide card? Tags: Nvidia Games Graphics Last response: January 12, 2010 12:34 AM in Graphics & Displays Share andykenben1971 January 11, 2010 11:29:49 PM Hey guys!! I just got a Geforce3 ti 500 for 12 bucks. Is it a good card for older games (1999-2003), do you still use yours? More about : geforce3 good series vide card jaguarskx a b Î Nvidia January 11, 2010 11:56:19 PM It think it was a good performance for an expensive when it was initially released in 2001 ($250?). Google for benchmarks. m 0 l andykenben1971 January 11, 2010 11:59:00 PM Of course I meant video in the title. I just want to know if it can realistically handle stuff like flash video, and older era games like Star Trek Elite Force, and Dungeon Siege? Why is everyone still so ga-ga over this card 10 years later? :} m 0 l Related resources what would be a cheaper graphics card to use but will still look good - Forum will my i5 2500 non k series be still good for 2013 gaming? - Forum HD 7850 2GB still a good gaming card? - Forum Would this graphics card still be good to use now? - Forum Is my video card still good enough - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Dungeon Siege is DX8 so you can play it with your GF3. Again, Google for benchmarks. How hard is that to do? m 0 l Best solution edeawillrule January 12, 2010 12:13:25 AM Actually a Geforce 3 can max out Elite Force. Or at least my old Geforce4 Ti 4200 could and it is about the same as a Geforce3 Ti 500. Same with Elite Force II.

However when the interweb" gives conflicting information on what games the card can, and can't play, I come to the lovely people in this forum to educate myself further.
