The Magnificent Seven: GeForce3 Board Round-up

MSI Starforce822

Priced at $340, the MSI Starforce822 is one of the cheapest cards in this comparison. That doesn't mean that extras have to be pruned back, as the manufacturer demonstrates. MSI is also poised to become a serious player in the graphics card market segment. Like Asus, MSI's motherboard production has endowed it with outstanding production capacities and has placed excellent distribution channels at its disposal.

The software intended for use with the connectors we describe below is unsatisfactory. On the upside, Rogue Spear and V-Rally 2 have been bundled with the board.
