Hi! Since my current graphics card (NVidia Riva TNT2) doesn´t support most D3D samples included in the DirectX 8 SDK, I was planning to replace it for a GeForce 2. Can anybody who own that card tell me if it supports most/all D3D 8 samples? Thanks!!

GF3 and/or Radeon 7500/8500 support full DX8 features in hardware. The GF2 does not.


GF3 is a little expensive for me, I´m a hobbyist programmer. Does GF2 support most of them?

There are lesser models of the Geforce 3, I don''t remember the exact names Ti200 or something, but it''s no more than a geforce2 pro or gts.....

a GF2 will be capable of most of the SDK samples with the exception of pixel shaders. At least in the US, you can sometimes get a GF3 pretty cheaply if you watch for sales. If at all possible, I''d recommend saving up for the GF3, but the GF2 is OK if you can''t wait.

Well, ok, thanks for the advice! I´ll wait a few weeks before buying the card. Besides, the economy here in Argentina is a mess. Thanks!
