    I've decided to replace my Diamond Stealth 16mb Riva-TNT card. Any suggestions? Ive been happy with this card its just 4 years old so I figure theres better stuff out there. I'm just confused reading all the reviews on the ATI & G-force cards. Should i get 128mb or is 64 OK. Is riva-TNT still good or do they work with all games?

    I'm running XP on a 933 P3 256 ram and a 17" kds monitor.

    Any ideas?? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    Oh yea...If its on Amazon.com its better because I've got a gift certificate

    I run a 32 or 16Mb ATI All-in-Wonder card to watch TV on and grab video to edit on the 'puter. I do zero gaming, so I have no idea what I'm talking about with gaming specs... I got this card a year or so ago, whenever it was super-top-of-the-line. I'd imagine by now these cards have to be much better, or at least available with 128mb...
    I only recommend it because it's so cool for TV watching in the background of whatever I'm working on. It's great for catching video, too... I actually have a second I'm going to put in my Mac with the DVD-burner when I get it, that will be snazzy, mailing family DVD's of the kids opening presents christmas morning....
