Recommendation on good graphic cards and monitors
Posted on 1998-07-28
I am considering purchasing a few items, and would like some feedback both good or bad on any of the following.
17" Belinea monitors. The one I am looking at, has a refresh rate of 115 hz at 1024x768, but its CRT dot pitch rate is 0.27mm (shadow mask rate?) when most monitors are 0.23mm.
What should I be looking for in a monitor?
I was thinking of getting either the Matrox G100 Productiva AGP 2d card with 8 megs Ram for £69, and an Orhid Righteous 3dfx 12 meg Voodoo II for £190
OR the Matrox G200 which is both a 2d and 3dfx card in one, 8 megs for £120.
The Matrox G200 seems to make better sense, since its cheaper and does both, and I dont play that many games anyway, apart from the odd Quake. I do however plan to play more games this year. But some people are saying the Matrox G200 is a better and faster card than Righteous 3d Voodoo?
Which card should I choose and does anyone have any personal experience?
