The 3D Prophet MX II is a good mix of price and quality. When I was looking to buy a video card, I wanted to keep in the relatively "budget" category, that is to say not over £300! It seems that there is a big gap between those cards around £100 - £150, and then those at £300+. This is a top-end card for this price bracket. The card itself may look a bit funny, but this is, as you all know, irrelevant. The specs are shown above, and are impressive. I own many 3D-oriented games, and none have problems with this card aside from FIFA 2000. Using this as an example, the game just doesn't recognise the card, and it is forced to run in 640 x 480 ...

I bought this card a little while ago and havent looked back since! I was looking for a card which not only was highly recommended but was actually going to be afffordable as well. At the time a Geforce 2 GTS was about £250, I bought this card for less than £100. Thats good value. As far as its technical specifications go, its not THAT much different to the GTS chip in that it has the built in T&L (transform and lighting) the biggest difference under the "bonnet" is that it only has two texture pipelines, reminiscent of the old TNT2. This still isnt too shaby but will mean that when masses of pixels are being pushed around the screen its going to lag more than . Read the complete review

These days, with most new computers being sold with processors clocked at over 800Mhz, it is no longer your CPU that holds back your computers gaming performance. These days, the major bottleneck in pc systems is the graphics card, meaning that if you want faster graphics, you want a faster graphics card. And this is one of the good ones, for a diminuitive price. I got mine for £85, and it made an astounding difference to my P3 500 based system, I was previously using a 32Mb ATi Rage Fury card, which can handle itself in most game situations, until recently. For example, before, on Hitman: Codename 47, as soon as the action got going, my pc started to creak ... Read the complete review

I am now the proud owner of a 900MHz AMD Athlon based PC. Oh how happy I am. Trouble is, when you have a fast PC, you really do need to have a decent graphics card to get anywhere near what you want from your computer. Now, when I bought my spangly new PC it only came with an old Riva TNT2...Time for some upgrading methinks! The 3D Prophet 2 MX is the "budget" version of NVidias mighty GeForce 2 chipset and this is why it is much cheaper than other models such as the GeForce 2 GTS or Ultra. It will set you back around £99. However in this case budget does not mean poor performance. The card is great and I can play Quake 3 on 1024x768 without as much as ... Read the complete review

This card is easy to install and configure, and very fast. I've got the 32Mb version. It comes with an overclocking utility which I haven't touched yet because it doesn't have a fan, and I think it's quick enough. It handles Grand Prix 3 and Colin McRae Rally 2 really well, and I'm yet to come up against a game that doesn't run smoothly in 800x600. Most popular games run smoothly at higher resolutions, and Quake II and the Thief 2 demo that came with the card are happy at 1024x768 (with Quake II running in OpenGL mode). As far as I can tell the drivers for the card are very stable - no real problems so far with most of the games ... Read the complete review
