Best Video Card for MAX? 
By Tranquilizator on Aug 30, 2001 05:56 PM
I've decided to compile a new system completely for 3d. I'm not sure which video card to buy though. I want my new system to be reasonably fast for a reasonable price. The cards I've looked at are nVidia geForce2 64mb mx400/pro/gts/ultra and I am also thinking about geForce3 but its probably too much for now. Please give me some advice. Thanks!

If you are considering a reasonable card you might wanna check 3D Labs Oxygen series. They are not based on the Nvidia Chips but they supply a good bang for the buck. Maybe go for a Gloria II (of Elsa). It's a bit old but check it anyway. Good choice for waht you have suggested.

I agree Gloira cards are how ever expensive but in return you get a quite rocking performance, note that the Gloria cards are not made for gameing

There is no best Video Card. I have a Duron 750, 256mbSDRAM 133mhz, GF mx200 AGPx4 32mbSDRAM.
I would buy a GFmx200. Very good value and work very well with the new nVidia D4 20.00 drivers. Just make sure you have plenlty of RAM. Like 256 for Win98se and more if your using 2000 or XPpro.
Win98se can only address 256 ram or less.

best bang for the buck,
go with Nvidia cards..
all the cards released by Elsa are Video game cards... so if you want to play games as well as 3d. go with elsa cards or go buy other nvidia cards and you can enable Quadro manually.  And oh lord are Maxtreme Drivers for Quadro cards oh so cool and FAST in 3dSmax!!!

Can you take a Ge-Froce2 MX400 w/ 64MB ram and enable Quadro manually??  I have heard of that before but have not found anything on the subject.

Geforce 3 or Geforce 2 GTS may be the best choice for MAX use. U can Enable Quadro features to geforce with help of SoftQuadro and get professional features to use by that way. So U get Quadro with price of Geforce. ;)

I have Geforce 3 "modified" to Quadro DCC with program called SoftQuadro. After using SoftQuadro U can instal maxtreme drivers to max and get Quadro's performance to MAX with Geforce.

U can download newest version of Rivatuner here. It have SoftQuadro included to it:

and here is some more info about SoftQuadro:

SoftQuadro is safetiest way to turn ur Geforce to Quadro. I recommend for all Geforce owners who use MAX.

PS. Ati Fire GL would also be a great choice. It's quite cheap and performancy.
