help me pick an old video card

Hi guys,

I am thinking of fixing another box using by scavenging some old parts, well just for fun.

I have:

- ATI 3D Rage Pro Turbo
- ATI Rage IIC
- Creative TNT2 M64

I have been trying too google their specifications and comparison but no luck. They seem to be budget cards from similar era, not that I expect them to give decent 3D performance, but which of them should I pick here?

Decided to go with the TNT2 as it seems to have more video ram thus likely it is newer.

Thanks for reading.

good call.

the tnt riva is an nvidia based card and so much easier to get 3d working with than an Ati example

Yep, I am used to configuring ATI cards and am surprised that it is much simpler than what I use to do.
