3D cards in your PC my earlier thread was about which one but I love half-life(good [B]SHOOT-UM-UP[/B]game) but I can play it without the 3D card. Does the 3D card improve that much or is it just hype?

It all depends upon you base system. I have an Athlon 500 and a Vodoo 3 3000. I run it at full graphics and it is sweet!!! The guns are round and shine and it looks much more realistic. But you cant get that kind of resolution and desired effect without a graphics card. Software rendering just can't compare at all. So YOU MUST HAVE A GOOD CARD!!!! [sniper]

Definitely not hype, 3D cards improved the graphics in games like HL, Quake I and Quake II to an amazing degree. 3D cards are now required for most new games, and its been that way for about 2-3 years now. [url]www.sharkyextreme.com[/url] for card reviews and such.
