OK so which of these ancient cards gives better performance in games?

TNT2 or Matrox G400 Dualhead Max? Both are equipped with 32MB of VRAM.

The G400 is usually the better performer, however far too often both will not be able to play the latest games. And actually the TNT will 'work' in more games than the G400, but when they are head to head the G400 will do better, not that that's much consolation.

Take a look at this big comparo, and you'll get an idea of their relative performance, and what is playable and what is not;

Actually, the best way to look at it IMO, is the G400 is better because it will show the Demo-movies of 'the game you can't play on either' with better quality. :evil:

why the question are you planning on trading in your tnt for the g400? if so im sure you could find you a nice 4200ti for a really cheap but efficient upgrade.

No way - I'm trying to settle and argument between me and my mate - he thinks his G400 kicks the ass of my TNT2.

Damn, I've lost. Oh well, not the first time I regret being an egotistic bigmouth! :(

Well judging by the specs on the above link it seems that they are identical with the onlybenefit of the Matrox having two monitor outputs - surely the Matrox has limited compatibility in gaming though, making all that power go to waste?

Yes me and my computer buff mates argue over these things - we (mostly I) have no life! LOL
