    I live in UK and have about £175 or about $220 US. I'm looking for the best performence video card I can get for that price, any sugestions.

    My system is a pentium 4 1.5Ghz with 256 DDR and a motherboard supporting 4xAGP

    Alternatively I have a similar networked system with a 1.4 overclocked AMD Thunderbird on a KT7A - Raid Motherboard with about 198 MB of SD RAM.

    I've got a TNT2 but thats starting to show it's age and want something that gives me a better 3D MARK score. Any suggestions?

    My first choice would be the GeForce3 Ti 200 followed by the ATi Radeon 8500. The Radeon can outperform the GeForce, but is still having driver issues (according to reviews).

    I suggest the ATI 64 mb DDR. I really like it and haven't had any problems of anykind in Me. You will even get $10 back on it. :D US price is $210. It is kick *ss in 3D gaming and what not, and is just awesome in general. :)
