The Final Decision

If you're set on buying a Rendition Verite based card, give the $129 price-tag of the Thriller 3D a whirl, although the 8MB version is a bit overpriced, you do get a considerable amount for the money.  For you Pentium II users...what are you doing reading this review?  Grab a Riva card instead ;)
