    any other thoughts?

    Get Radeon, overclock it a little (www.rage3d.com) and enjoy great 2D and good budget gaming at 32bit.

    Don't just oc the radeon, enable Hyper Z to..then your card will be signifigantly better than a gf2mx, especialy in 32bit

    what exactly is teh radeon LE 32 meg DDR? Is that any good?

    By busithoth April 15, 2001, 10:06 PM

    I'd advise you to get the Radeon also.
    I got the MX, and actually love the card, but within a month or so wished I'd went for the Radeon instead. The MX was meant to plug up the hole in time between new card releases, but as that hole got bigger, I wished I had just spent the (then) extra $25.

    Now I'm waiting ostensibly for the Radeon2 MAXX, which looks like it's what, a year away, if ever? There was supposed to be a Radeon MAXX, too.

    I don't think you'd be unhappy with the MX, I'm not. But for longevity, and if you like 32MB color, then definately go for Radeon.

    Rade0n 32meg DDR LE core/memorey 143/286 73$
    Rade0n 32meg SDR 166/166 very slow card
    Rade0n 32meg DDR 166/333 75$
    Rade0n 64meg DDR 166/333 OEM 165$
    Rade0n 64meg DDR w/vivo 183/366 retail 173$
    Geforce 2 MX 32meg SDR 175/165 very slow in 32bit 75$

    The LE has hyper Z disabled u need to enable it with a tweaker @ www.rage3d.com u also need to over clock it to atleast 170/170 to match the performance of the regular 32meg DDR card.

    Right now im running a Rade0n 64meg DDR w/vivo overclocked to 235/436 and its alot faster then my geforce 2 ultra.

    jesus dude, that's a serious OC for your radeon LOL... i clocked mine at 185/185 and after about 6 hours of running anything 3d, it goes all wacky. i never noticed this with the last raid-on tweaker, so i think it has to do with the ram timings being more unstable when the chips get hotter or something... is the default for speed "medium" on the ram for a 32ddr AIW?

    By BuggyLoop April 16, 2001, 04:08 AM

    that guy is -=NUTS=- about overclocking, i have no freaking idea how he got it to 235mhz but i would like to know !!
