Is this a good video card?
Posted 10 February 2002 - 06:05 AM
Yesterday at a computer show I picked up a MSI GeForce 3 TI-200 with 64 MB of DDR for $159. Is that a good card for that price? I've been on the internet the last few days and everyone was saying how they like the TI chipset. I'm not really a heavy duty gamer but I do like flight sims and a few shoot-em-ups. This card also has a connection for a flat panel display which I will be getting in the future. Here are some of the specs:
nVidia® GeForce 3 Titanium 200 Chipset
64MB DDR SDRAM

The card seems to be working great so far. I tried Microsoft flight sim 2002 out and graphics are rendered much more cleanly and quickly then my Creative Blaster Banshee did. Pretty happy with it but I guess I was wondering if I got a good buy.

I'm really not familiar with that brand name, but any 64meg board that works for 159.00 is a good buy.
There are a few graphis boards out there that seem to have some conflicts with some hardware configurations, big name boards I might add, ATI Radeons stick out in my mind.
ATI's are good boards, it just time to time, they dont like a particular configuration.

Ya! I'm not the biggest fan of nVidia chipsets myself (I like ATI better), but you got a GREAT price on that card! MSI is short for Microstar, and you probably recognize Microstar motherboards. They're a good company.
