For Graphic Drawing and Picture Editing. What is the better card for it. ATI or the GForce II?

we are talking 2D stuff here right?

either is good. both are overkill and even 32mb DDR can handle very high resolutions with high refresh rates.

picture quality... *shrugs*
some swear by the ATI radion... others swear AT it.
my 4mb diamond stealth 2000 had a great picture quality... up to 1024x768. and that was years ago!
as did my ATI 4mb ragepro PCI, and my tnt2, tnt2pro, and my current geforce2pro.

If your not into 3D and games are not your thing, do yourself (and your eyes) a big favor and get a Matrox G450, the very best for 2D image-quality! Furthermore, if you eventually want the niceties of using 2 monitors (as I do with Photoshop), the G450 accomodates that. :smile:

I do high-end 2D design and video editing on both GeForce2 cards and RADEON cards.
I can’t notice a performance difference between them.
The RADEON does have some Win2K driver issues though so I would probably recommend the GeForce2.

Either would do fine in my opinion...

I have an aging Ge2 GTS in my computer, and I really don't see much difference in picture in 2d design than with the AIW I tested.
