Does this sound like you after reading our Super High-End Video Card Shootout? If so, this here is the roundup for you. Our Value Video Card Roundup takes a look at value priced video cards, the kinds of card that normal people with "budgets" buy. You know, the kind of person that doesn't have a "trust fund" or a "sugar daddy."
Yes, we've rounded up eight value-priced video cards to help you pick what to buy and what to avoid. There are performance pitfalls in the value market just as there are in the high-end.
The cards we tested:3dfx Voodoo4 4500 AGP
ATI RADEON DDR 32MB
ATI RADEON SDR 32MB
ELSA GLADIAC MX
Hercules 3D Prophet II MX
Leadtek WinFast GeForce2 MX
MSI MS-StarForce 816
So this is how we're going to do it. We'll start with general technology overviews. We'll move on to closer looks at each card. We'll swing into our performance analysis. We'll swoop down into a look at the software and bundles. We'll continue on to a look at value. We'll gallop over to an overall scoring comparison. And then we'll tie things down with a pretty, pink, conclusion.
