I thought some of you who are building new systems might like to know what OS and type video card slot the GeForce3 cards will support. Thus far the two cards out from Elsa (Gladiac 920) and Hercules (3D Prophet III) support the following:


Elsa Gladiac 920
OS: Windows® 98, Windows® 2000 , Windows NT® 4.0, Windows® Millennium Edition
Slot: AGP 2x/4x

Hercules 3D Prophet III:
OS: Windows® 98, Windows® 2000, Windows® Millennium Edition
Does not mention Windows NT® 4.0
Slot:AGP (does not mention 2x or higher)

Note: Neither mention an AGP Pro Slot which was a big question. The fact that an AGP Pro Slot is not required is great news for many of us because that means we don't have to limit our selection of motherboards to those that have an AGP Pro Slot.

If you know of any other GeForce3 cards that have their specs out please feel free to add to this.
