Hey! Another dude from Brazil!

Man, I really think that a Geforce2 is great, but with your specs, it will not work at full speed, since your cpu is a bottleneck in your computer. tnt2 is not much better than a voodoo3, so I would save money to upgrade the cpu first.

You should consider a Geforce2 Pro. It's just a bit more expensive and has a better performance.

The CPU is gonna bottleneck a GeForce 2 no matter which variation you have... but you're gonna upgrade the CPU eventually, right? May as well get the GeForce 2.

If your planning to upgrade your computer in about 6 months, then best advice is to probably hold onto your current voodoo3 untill it comes time to purchase your new system. Then upgrade to a better video card (like a Geforce3).

1. you save money, because geforce 3 class video cards are going to be dirt cheap in a couple of months

2. you stay on the technology curve. Why spend money on the lowest end geforce card who's performance maxes out around 800Mhz.

if you upgrade to a geforce2MX 200 now, your probably going to regret it in a couple of months...and then end up spending more money again on another grapihc card.

Final thought.
to Ali...thank god your finally upgrading that video card of yours!
A TNT2 m64 on a 1.2Ghz? I truely felt sorry for you. *weep*

I actually bought a new comp system for my brother as a gift.(actually he's my nephew but i treat him more like a brother:D).
Gave him an Athlon 1Ghz + Geforce2MX 200 (gonna save u know:D). I tried it on, and man wuz I surprised, that thing is really kinda slow with anything above 800x600, i had to return the damn thing and get at least an MX400, so now its a little bit smoother, and my brther aint complainin. SO if you're just gonna run everything at 640x480, then just stick with the mx200, otherwise get a Geforce 2MX/MX400 or above. Of course if you're gonna upgrade your comp in a couple of months anyway then just stick with the voodoo and buy an excellent card later. (as liquid has suggested).:D :D :D

Don't get the MX , thay ain't worth it , get a Pro or a GTS !
well if its for my computer, then i wouldn't have said it better myself, ehehehe:D :D :D

as far as i know voodoo is great on emulators, as long as there is a glide support in it. i recently have a voodoo 3 3000 and it was fast on my system (running impact emu w/ the glide plugin). i just sold it and bought a voodoo 5 5500.

Best Glide card - voodoo
Best OpenGL card - Nvidia
Best D3D card - both

for a hardcore gamer it's a must but my pocket suffers....:(

I really apreciate the tips
but i wont have money to upgrade my system, unless the dollar stop costing to much( i live in Brazil, so 1Dollar=2,74Real, plus 60% import tax)
and yes, i run my games at 640x480, at most 800x600
so i think ill stay with the mx200-its 245 R$
the creative Blaster is 450 R$-wow
ill just sell my voodoo 3 for 190 R$ and add 55bucks
as long its better than my voodoo 3 its all ok
