May the GeForce be with you Diamond review

AdvantagesFast, Powerful, Inexpensive, Compatable

DisadvantagesHard to get hold of, Not the fastest card around

"...provide some stiff competition for Nvidia however. Matrox ~~~~~ Matrox are unsurpassed for 2D quality in their graphics chipsets, unfortunately they have never quite matched that with their 3D quality, the drivers** have often been quite poor, and as such has never been recommended for the gamers amongst us. The Matrox Parhelia does close this gap somewhat, but at the price £expensive£, for a card that doesn't outperform the GF4 in most circumstances, ..." Read review

Old but powerful

AdvantagesCheap, Powerful & Stable.

DisadvantagesProbably better off with a GeForce 4 ti200.

"...can be downloaded from the Nvidia Website. Performance : The sole reason for upgrading my graphics card was obviously performance, & my god what a boost it was! 3D mark benchmarks expected a 85% 3D performance increase, which I was obviously very dubious about. But as it turns out they were spot on. With my system spec in 3D Mark 2001 on the default benchmark I get 6250 (6500 With a small overclock) 3D marks & considering my cpu & graphics ..." Read review

Geforce 3 Ti200 - where do we go from here?

Advantagesperformance, drivers, ease of installation

Disadvantagesbundled software

"...in the form of the nVidia detonator drivers, which came on CD - or these can also be downloaded from the nVidia website. The beauty of the drivers is that they support a large range of cards made by nVidia, so if you are upgrading from a previous generation, the drivers do not need to be reinstalled. The card was detected by the drivers on upgrading and silently changed the card type without any prompting on my part. This is the way drivers should ..." Read review

MSI Geforce 3 Ti 200

AdvantagesGood Performance for the price

DisadvantagesThere are faster cards out there

"...the MSI drivers the Latest NVIDIA drivers will work just as well. My previous graphics card was a 3DFX 3500 TV and ran glide and Open GL games very well. I ran up some of my older games I.E Kingpin which was Open GL and it looked so sweet. Even with the resolution maxed out on Kingpin with full effects the Geoforce 3 from MSI does not miss a beat. Running winmark in standard mode I am achieving nearly 7.000 winmark’s this is good :-). There ..." Read review

A true Gamers card.

AdvantagesGreat card

DisadvantagesPricey and old games dont work

"...it is using the onboard NVidia Graphics chip which is the market leader when it comes to Graphics chips. For you games developers, artists and Web Wizards, this card comes with the nfiniteFX trechnology built in. This allows you to create and customise special graphical effects. Not your standard set that comes with Macromedia software. This way your graphics will have your own personal look and feel and not factory processed like so many others. Troublesome ..." Read review

WOW - It doesn't get better than this

AdvantagesMost powerful card on the market - stunning visuals, good driver support

DisadvantagesVery high price, heat production

"...memory like some cards are. The nVidia drivers, updated regularly and available for free from the website, and very easy to install and provide great support. All you have to do is download the self executing file and away it goes. On to the games - this card can do anything. Crank up the settings as high as they go and it has no problem providing mesmirising framerates - framerates over 100fps in quake3 with all the eye candy turned on. 2d is ..." Read review

Creative Geforce 3 Ti200 - Speed and reliability

Advantagesprice, speed

Disadvantagespoor bundled software

"Now virtually a budget graphics card, you can get premium performance at a cheap price. with still only the Geforce 3 Ti500, Certain Geforce 4's and the best Radeon cards outperforming it this card is no slouch. I can give lots of facts about the speed of the card, 3d Mark, frames per second in Quake 3 etc but there are many more dedicated reviews which do that better. However i can say that i've had zero problems with it so far - it worked first ..." Read review

Ge-Force power

AdvantagesSuper fast games and crystal clear graphics

DisadvantagesVery expensive!

"...graphics card! Powered by the new NVIDIA nfiniteFX engine and the Lightspeed Memory Architecture, the GeForce3 GPU enables users to look into a rich environment instead of just a computer screen. 3D scenes have ambiance with the GeForce3 because textures appear photo-realistic and custom lighting heightens the drama. Characters and living creatures have organic imperfections and unique expressions—you can see their personality. Programmability ..." Read review

Geforce3 is da man

AdvantagesIt improves half-life and cs a lot

Disadvantageserm, well its really complex (i think)

"I bought the geforce 3 in America last year the at the same time i bought red faction. I installed it at home easily and quicky as it is very well amde although it is a bit ugly, all those electric doodaahs Well i started using it and it was ultra cool because it made games like halflife or counter-strike a million times better, the game was smoother and less laggy and also it made my background look better. One problem is that i cant seem ..." Read review

Quite simply the best

AdvantagesQuite simply the best graphics card every made for the serious games. Incredible frame rates at very high resolutions.

DisadvantagesAlmost too advanced for todays market and gamers will have to wait until next year to see the full benefit of the card. Also users will require high quality monitors and at least a P4 to really benefit.

"...when I tested the new Nvidia Geforce3 Card. I work in IT and get to play with all the new kit that comes out and I have to admit this is by far the greatest advancement in PC gaming I have ever seen, however, despite it's stunning frame rate at high resolutions, we will not be able to take the card to it's limits as there are no games out yet that are advanced enough to take advantage.My advice wait until next year when the price will halve and the ..."
