    A Rage 128 UlTRA is a sweet 16 MB video card. Now the iMacs rule. :nod: I agree with some of you - the new iMac design is just plain nasty. Flower Power? :wtf:

    Are you on crack? A 16MB anything sucks! Games look just plain ugly with no memory to store textures. 32MB is standard, and 64MB is prefered. The Rage128 Ultra is nothing more than an overclocked Pro from what I've read. Don't get excited. :fist:

    I was going to say, it looked like the new ones were designed as kids computers, but looks like someone beat me too it :)...the Cube I guess is the new iMac type thing for adults?

    Oh and about video cards..you guys are just spoiled...my games look fine on my rage, not amazing, but a hell of a lot better than they used to 5, 6,7 years ago...hey think back to NES, or even to Atari, do we want that?

    Rage 128 pro is a decent card for games. It's not the best but it performs very well. I guess the "Ultra" tacked on the end signifies faster RAM or something?

    If it is a similar naming convention to nVidia's it would mean faster core and memory speeds.
