I'm still running my Voodoo5 5500 AGP (which, for the record, I ordered 1 day before 3DFX announced the sellout! 1 DAY!) and I'm thinking about an upgrade.
My son keeps grumbling about FPS, bump mapping, FPS.........
Well, the G4 4600 sure looks sweet, and so does the cost. Most of the reviews say "If you have a G3, don't bother). Also, the most advantages it gives as I see it are at the higher resolutions. I play at 1024 X whatever max and I'm happy.

Does it make sense to buy yesterdays card? I know it will be a big step up, and only go about $210 (only!)

My system is Abit KT7 RAID 1G Tbird 384M Crucial pc133 CAS 2

Suggestions? Versions? Abuse?
