    At the moment I would get a Gainwood Gf3 Golden Sample or a Hercules Prophet III , if u can wait a while tho the ATI Radeon 8500 looks like a nice card. I that, the Kyro 3 or Gf3 Ti500

    Indications are that the GeForce3 Ti500 is pretty hot, and will be available soon. Probably be rather expensive though.:eek:

    I've got the Elsa Gladiac 920, and I would say its a very nice graphics card, however, I got this card almost 6 months ago now, so its not as good as what is coming out now! But I have managed to get upto 7245 on 3D Mark 2001. Of course this was with some overclocking of the core and ram on the poor bugger!

    The Ti500s are retailing at almost the same price as the original GF3, at around £300-£350. If you are a bit strap for cash though, I'd go for a GeForce 3 Ti200, as they offer slightly better performance compared to the GF3 (unless you overclock it :D). You can pick up one of these cards for around £190 I think (someone back me up... please!!!) :p

    Also for your 3D Marks to be up and around the 8000+ mark, you need a fast enough processor to take you to that level. I think in the comparison with my CPU, if I was to whack a GF3 Ti500 in there I would expect to get around 8500 3D Marks, and Ive got a 1.4 AYHJA running at 1.5+ (mobo restrictions atm!!!) :mad: :(

    Hope this helps

    Well im tempted to go for a radieon 8500 at Xmas. Cause image quality is far superior and im putting money on the fact ati will sort out their drivers! Ebuyer.com - 8500 for £169ex Vat. HOWEVER im not sure if its DVI/Tv out only and not svga!?! Then ill get a Ti200.

    Ive got an 8500 sitting in my machine now and to be honest im not that impressed. If you want raw speed get the Nvidia based cards. If you want image quality get Ati as the picture is rather nice however dont exspect a massive improvement over Nvida. I only notice the difference when watching dvds on a 32 inch tv. And thats only at certain points. Safe to say ill be swapping it back with my mate (who lent it to me) as im not impressed enough with it. However if the values quoted above its a good card for the money but wait and see what price the nvidia card are before you buy
