Default 3d pc card

I want a new 3d card, I currently has voodoo 3 and some games doesn't seem to support it (found one, and I really want to play it...)

I don' want to spend too much tho...how much would be a good 3d card...

Depends on how much you want to spend (all prices below are in USD)

For budget cards, I recommend:

GeForce3 Ti 200 64 MB - ~$100
GeForce3 Ti 200 128 MB - ~$130-150
GeForce4 Ti 4200 - ~$150-200 (128 MB model; 64 MB model being higher clocked)

ATI Radeon 8500 LE 128 MB - ~$120-150

I would say to go with a 6600GT for around #200. It would be much better than an 8500LE.

by far. The 6600 GT will also smash the geforce 3 ti to bits and bury it.

Those are like prices from 3 years ago... For 200$ you can get a new 6600GT which rapes a 4200 like no tommorow

What kind of PC do you have now? I am guessing since you have a voodoo you have a late p3 or something. ATI 9550 would be nice at 70$ at compu-best.com since your Canadian
