I had one of these cards for a while, thinking it would be perfectly matched to my PC at the time. It was a Celeron 400, 128Mb RAM. I thought it would give me a little more added punch over the Voodoo2 card I was running. It was one of the biggest mistakes I ever made with computers. It started out ok, but not really running much faster than the Voodoo2, maybe pushing an extra 5 or 6fps on Quake 2. I was a little disappointed, but put up with it. After all, I did get it very cheap. But later on, it started having more and more problems. Reformatting the HDD seemed to work, for a few days. Then the problems started again, blue screens, massive slowdown in ... Read the complete review

Well if you are buying your PC now, and aren’t too interested in playing games, at £89 you cant go far wrong with this card. For gamers on the other hand, you can get far better cards. This is more of a middle range card, with 32mb of onboard RAM. I have had this card for about 8months, and if I was to buy a new PC now, I would make sure it had a different graphics card. I am very into games, and if at time of purchase of my PC I had a bit more money I would have went for something like a GeForce 2 or even a GeForce 256. This is a card that will run most games, but just because it has 32mb of onboard RAM, doesn’t mean it’s going to produce ... Read the complete review

General/Summary: It almost seems foolish reviewing a video card that has long since been surpassed by bigger, better video cards, but since they are still available for purchase, and since I bought one, I thought it best to have at least one review here. The 3D Blaster is, at its heart, an nVidia chip. Specifically, the Riva TNT2 Ultra. Of course, you already know that from when you clicked on it. What you might not know is what all that entails. Gameplay: Some would say that a peripheral is only as good as the programs that support it. Using this reasoning, I can only give the TNT 2 Ultra a 4. Though I have yet to find a game (or program) for which the card does NOT ... Read the complete review

The first thing that you notice about this card when you get it out of its box is the big heat sink that’s sitting on top of the chip. Trust me when I say this, the card gets hot, very hot. The blaster control utility that it uses to configure the card is pretty good as far as these go. It’s very easy to get around and if you know what you are doing it is very tweak able. You even have the option to save the settings and come back to them. The card performs well; the benchmark on 3d mark 2000 with a Pentium 3 500 and 128 of ram is between 2200 and 2500. There are no added extras with this card such as TV out or digital monitor connection but it is still a ... Read the complete review
