I have a Diamond V770 Ultra (TNT2 Ultra). I've had it stabily overclocked for over a year. It used to be at 150mhz engine and 183mhz memory, but now its at 162mhz engine and 212mhz memory. Keep in mind that its a TNT2 Ultra though.
It plays most of todays PC games well enough. The TNT2 of coarse lacks some newer features like T&L. The thing I miss the most though is FSAA.
I can play Quake 3 just fine if I use 800x600 w/ 16 bit color.
If you happen to be familiar with Deus Ex I can play it in D3D with all the settings turned up at 1024x768.

As far as ePSXe. Games play fine at 1024x768, but you can't use settings such as Full Vram Primitives, or Pete's special blurring.
If it helps I am attaching my normal setup for Pete's OpenGL 1.51

Heheh
I forgot to say before that $40 is a good price, but you may wanna check here for prices. I don't think you'll find a better price if you're getting it from a store for $40.

beware though it depends on the brand or manufacturer be sure its not made by untested manufacturer coz my classmate bought tnt2 though its overclockability is very limited

This is odd timing, but some random person from a Deus Ex forum just Emailed me about how crappy his TNT2 worked with Deus Ex. I don't know what brand he had, but he said it was a TNT2 m64. He said it was even slow at 800x600.
Oh well I don't know because I've been able to run Deus Ex at 1600x1200. It of coarse runs better at 1024x768, but its still playable at 1600x1200(and it looks sooo good).
If I were going to buy a video card right now I wouldn't waste my time with a TNT2, but if you only wanna play emulators and some kinda older games then its OK.

HEHE......don't take it the wrong way man.Taking money out of my ASS means that I would have waited or I would have borrowed some money to get a G-Force

Hmmm...
The settings of my drivers? I don't have any settings. I mean I do have settings, but I didn't change any of them, I just installed the drivers and started playing games.
I'm using detonator 7.58 on my TNT2 ultra(which may very well be more powerful than your card). I have never seen a TNT2 m64 in action though so I don't know how it compares to a Ultra. I know the Ultra is more expensive though. Also I overclocked mine(as you can see in the second post of the thread).
You can get all the detonators at 3Dchipset.com
I got mine from some other site that doesn't exist any more.
Do you know how to install the drivers so that you can choose which type of TNT2 you have?
Look at that 2nd post for my Pete's OpenGL 1.51 settings.
