GeForce or Hercules
I was just wondering, which has the better bang for the buck?
A GUILLEMOT HERCULES 3D PROPHET KYRO II 4500 64MB NO TV-OUT - OEM - 77.00
VISIONTEK Xtasy 5632 GEFORCE2 GTS-V 4X/2X 32MB AGP - OEM
Thanx im Advance...
Hard choice to make there. Are you looking for better graphics or better speed?
The Kyro II has better graphics, but slower speed.
The GeForce2 has good graphics, but faster speed.
If I were you, I'd get the GeForce2 GTS. IMO its a better card. Don't get me wrong, the Kyro is good too. But in most games nowadays, speed is better. You won't have time for the ooohs and ahhhs about how the graphics look.
If you have a 1Gz or better CPU, get the GTS.
This specific GTS-V card is clocked 175/300, as opposed to 200/333 in normal GeForce2 GTS. I guess it means "value" or something. Anyway, performance of this specific card can be lower than of KyroII, since memory bandwidth is a serious problem for GeForce class cards, and lowering clocks doesn't help much
Try to find "normal" GTS, or even Pro.
Best Regards ...
The geforce v is able to hit 200/333 or somewhere close. Go to
Bid $63 for a reg visiontek geforce 2 gts +$10 shipping, u will win for sure at $63 cause that is the lowest price possible to bid since it is reserved n they have 215 for sale n only 20 have met it. Good luck.
Beware, i'm not sure if this a gts v! lol. The bottom of the page says 20 + million triangles a second, which is not the 25 million a reg gts dishes, but at the bottom it says 5+ GB/s memory bandwith, a reg gts has 5.3, a gts v has 4.8 or lower.
