Which of these old GPUs is best?

by slow235comp / December 15, 2012 9:37 AM PST

32-bit XP. 1.5G RAM. K8T neo MS-6702 mobo, OC'able 2.2ghz AMD Athlon 64 3400+

ASUS v3800m AGP
Radeon 7000 Radeon VE Microsoft Corporation AGP
Dell Nvidia P73 64 MB MS-8878 GeForce 4 MX420 AGP
Nvidia P118
3dforce b32 plus 32MB AGP
Diamond Stealth 64 PCI
3dfx Voodoo3 2000 16 MB AGP
I'm guessing MX420 but it won't work as well cause it's Dell?

And the Voodoo 2000 was the one I remember because of it's skill at some emulator game. So it outclassed the others for that app.

That doesn't mean much but shows that the app you want to use could have the cards swapping positions more often than a herd of cats.

All are pre-historic compared to today's cheapest card so try it from the newest to the oldest as you do your speed tests.
