    Pros & Cons

    Pros

    • Doesn't cost that much more over the original GeForce3
    • Has a DVI connector
    • Is the fastest consumer card out there
    • Good price

    Cons

    • No bundled software
    • Weak documentation
    • "Featureless"

    Conclusion

    Visiontek's Xtasy 6964 featuring the GeForce3 Ti500 chipset turned out to be a pretty decent competitor gaining about 15% or so at higher resolutions over the original GeForce3. The one thing you do have to look at is the prices though. You can find a Visiontek GeForce3 card for about $275 and a Ti500 card for about $310. That's a 11% addition in price, not too shabby eh?

    Should we leave it at that and definitely recommend this card? No sir, if you look at Visiontek's Xtasy 6564 featuring the GeForce3 Ti200 chip, you will find that you can get it online for about $175. The card ran about 30% slower then the Ti500, but the price difference is about 43% less.

    What does this mean? It may be your best bet to pick up a Ti200 card rather then the Ti500 if you want to upgrade from a non-GeForce3 card. Although if you want the latest and greatest, the Visiontek Xtasy 6964 is your best bet. It's a great card that runs very fast, if you want to impress the friends, stick one of these in your computer.
