A Geforce 2MX performs better than a Voodoo 3. Check the scores, they're better than a V5 5500 would have on that test system.

Besides, A GF2MX supports larger textures (2048x2048) than the V3 (256x256) and has AGP Texturing and Hardware T&L.

Unfortunately, it's 2D quality can't really match that of the Voodoo3.
But if the best 3D performance is you're desire, then go for the GF2MX.

geforce2 mx 32 (especially some noname piece of junk) is not very much faster than voodoo3.it supports large textures and texture compression,but 2d is terrible,it has no glide support (important-at least for me),some older games have problems as well.there wont be any change in CS 1.5..

In Glide games like Unreal or Unreal Tornament the Voodoo3 dominates the GF2 MX. But in most of the other cases the GF2 MX is faster and more compatible. Many many new games won't even start with a Voodoo3 at all. :(
