I am working on getting an older desktop P/C up and running for my son. I have two older video cards available, and don't recall which should be the faster / better card. The choice is between a Radeon 9000 (64MB DDR but not the Pro version) and a Geforce 3 (also 64 MB DDR).

I'd be guessing the Gf 3 would have more raw processing power, the 9000 may have additional features that the geforce doesn't have though.

If he doesn't die, he'll get help!!!

teh GF3 will have more raw fillrate , because the 9000pro is only a 4x1 architecture, and the GF3 is a 4x2.. makes a big difference

vertex processing is a little more powerful on the 9000pro.. doesmt make up for teh lack of multitexturing (4x1 vs 4x2)
