Upgrading from TNT2 M64

Hi people, I am looking to upgrade my graphics card and I'd like a couple of recommendations. I am currently running:

Asus A7V M/board with AMD Athlon 800Mhz
RIVA TNT2 M64 AGP graphics
Soundblaster 128

I'm looking to get a Geforce 2. Looking at current posts the MX400 is out of the question, so much budget extends to either the:

Geforce2 GTS 32MB AGP or
Geforce2 GTS TI 64MB AGP

Which is better? Can I expect much improvement over the TNT2 unit?

Cheers on any replies.

  1. Since the GTS actually has the horsepower to use it, go with the 64mb version.

    Yes, you will notice a HUGE difference over that M64. Huge.
  2. Are you in the USA?

    On a tight budget I recommend the Visiontek Xtasy 5632 32MB, Geforce2 GTS-V (V for value). Basically it's a slower speed version of a GTS but it easily overclocks to the former's speed and higher. Otherwise it's the same card. <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com" target="_new">www.newegg.com</A> is selling it for $52. This card easily performs with (and beyond most) Geforce 2 MX-400's. Check out the <A HREF="http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.asp?description=14-129-007" target="_new">user reviews</A> at that site.

  3. Anything will be faster than that card, hell a 3 year old with some crayolas would have higher fps@! Only 32 colors though, unless you got them one of those big jumbo 100 color boxes.

    No Overclock+stock hsf=GOOD!
  4. Get a GeForce2 Ti. It'll be noticably faster than the GTS (250MHz core/400MHz memory instead of 200MHz/333MHz).

    AMD technology + Intel technology = Intel/AMD Pentathlon IV; the <b>ULTIMATE</b> PC processor
  5. I highly recommend any GeForce 3 cards if you can afford. You will get significant improvement. If you want to stay with Geforce2, GeForce2 Ti is the way to go! check www.pricewatch.com if you are in the U.S.
    Good Luck.
