    Diamond Stealth S60 Radeon 700032MB PCI 60 dollars
    Radeon 9250 64bit 256mb PCI 45 dollars
    Evga FX5200 128MB 64bit PCI 50 dollars
    3DFuzion 256MB 128bit PCI 82 dollars
    Jaton 5200 128bit 64bit PCI 15 dollars
    BFG 6200 OC 256MB 64bit PCI 116 dollars
    Visiontek 2400HD 256MB 64bit PCI (Which i am using now) 135 dollars
    PNY 8400GS 512MB PCI(which i took back, too big for my small tower ) 83 dollars

    Plan to keep my BFG 6200/2400HD for my Pentium III, and i plan to buy a Diamond Stealth 9250 256mb 128bit PCI card for backup, and buy a 8400GS 512MB the BFG or Sparkle or Albatron version for my P3.

    For my secondary rig, i am buying a 8600GT PCI version, and a Diamond 1GB 4670 PCIE. Once the 3450 PCI version comes out, i will be getting rid of the 2400HD.

    Don't mean to be an ass, but I was wondering: Wouldn't it be cheaper to simply go with a good system that has integrated an integrated GPU? It's not like they are much worse than all those 64bit bandwidth GPUs you have there + you would have something more than a p3.

    Really don't want to be correcting your way of using your PC; just wondering why you are still on a P3 and have a shitload of low-budget 3d-cards which summed up would make a far more equal to a more powerful system with a decent GPU-Solution. ^^'

    LOL i don't use Integrated anymore, i stop doing that when i knew what a GPU was, this was back in late 2005 btw. Yes i didn't know what a graphic card was until mid to late 2005 :laugh:

    I plan to buy a secondary computer in the future, so i will have a more powerful rig soon enough.

    Because my pentium III is awesome and its been working since 2000, and it plays my games just fine. Its my main computer, so i am gaming in 2009 on a P3/600mhz/90watts, baby :rockout:
