Hi Chris,do you know if the Elsa Gladiac nvidia G2 MX 400 is a good card? Will there be a difference on general to my now used TNT card?sincerelyTFT

TFT,It's difficult to say if the GeForce 2 MX400 card will improve framerates in FU3 compared to a TNT card. It should certainly improve performance in other games, but FU3 is so CPU intensive that it is generally a processor upgrade that will improve performance in this case.Maybe someone else can offer some help here ?Chris Low,ENGLAND.

TFT and Chris,I upgraded from a TNT32 to a Geforce 2MX 32MB card last year (actually, I swapped it out when putting together another PC) and, whilst I didn't expect a major performance boost I got one!As mentioned in another post, I'm still using a Celeron 366 (o/c'd to 457MHz) and 256MB Ram and I get ~passable framerates in bad weather which I didn't get before. As you say Chris, FU3 is very uP-intensive and I know that a processor upgrade would help. By way of comparison, a mate has a P3 running @ 800MHz with a TNT32 card. He gets better framerates with a full screen (downtown, between buildings with sliders on 100%) but I get the same rates over general terrain @3Kft. At higher altitude with the sliders turned down to 30%, I get better rates.So there... If you want to trim the trees, do the uP upgrade first.Jon Point

The "surround gaming", or three displays at the same time is a very interesting feature of the new Matorx card. No more guessing when to turn to final...Too bad I can't afford three two more monitors and a $400 video card..

Hi TFT,I have the very card but I can't tell if there would be a difference between TNT and it. Although the Gladiac isn't the best G2 out there, I'm satisfied with the performance and quality. Above all it's a very reliable card (don't know about overclocking though).:-wave
