Did anyone see the GeForce 3/Doom III video clip? That is...there's no other word for it - l33t.

Check http://www.doomworld.com to find it.

Dont buy GeForce 3 because I think there will eventually be an end to the 3D card market ending with the 'ultimate' cards.

But why waste time with that when you can get the 3d card God himself would use

I bought Voodoo 5 because:

1.Im a 3DFX fan.
2.Its the last card they ever made
2.It was better then my old Voodoo 2.
3.It had FSAA which no card should be with out.

I agree on having both a computer and a Nintendo 64. Why the heck not? http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

The advantage to N64? The most recently-outdated technology, its games are now cheap and plentiful used. And its graphics are just fine by today's standards...

In a few years, pick up the new system. Probably PS2. Cheap games, etc. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif

You just need to know where to get your cards at. I know where to get creative 64mg GeForce II GTS cards for dirt cheap. They are O.E.M. cards.

something just came to me...
Console fanatics claim to not need $XXX upgrade ever six months, but they'll gladly shell out $200 for the new console every 10 months. In the last 11 years, I've owned three computers and never ONCE upgraded any of them. Granted for 8 of those years I had the ****tiest computer ever, the three year old P2 350 my family uses is ALMOST as good as this one that's not even a year old that I'm typing on right now (this one has a faster processor and more ram, the other has a better video card).
In those 11 years, there's been approximately $4000 dollars of computer hardware move through the front door of my house. If I had jumped on EVERY console in those 11 years (NES, SNES, SG, PSX, PS2, Sega CD/Saturn/32x, n64, Jaguar, Dreamcast), you're looking at a few thousand dollars spent. Okay you're thinking that the console was in fact cheaper, but look at this: you didn't type that english paper you had to turn in last week on a Gameboy Color. The extra $1000 spend on computers over those years were offset by the fact that I can do my taxes on the thing or type this message.
in short, consoles are lame.

Guess what? I got this computer for free!

I have a Voodoo 3 card: Installed effortlessly, plays every game I own with no problems, easy to configure.

Consoles are here to stay since they are money making machines for game developers but I will never own one. Sega Genesis was enough for me. X-Box? It's a PC.

I was sorry to hear about 3Dfx going the way of the T-Rex. I am planning to buy a new card since I have the same model as Cmdr. Cracken. But I have heard alot of GeoForce horror stories so I am still window shopping.

I was happy.

I have heard lots of horror stories too. Stories of GREAT GRAPHICS and SMOOTH FRAMERATES! Dear lord, run for the HILLS!
