Asus GeForce3 V8200 Deluxe Combo

With the launch of the Titanium Series of GeForce3s it is easy to forget that the original GeForce3 is still a great performer when it comes to 3D video cards. The Asus V8200 is no exception. Shown above, this card is still a great option for anyone looking for top of the line 3D performance. In addition, the card reviewed here is the Deluxe Combo version. The V8200 Deluxe is the basic Asus V8200 with a TV tuner and TV outs on it; many of these features can be seen on any Asus Deluxe Combo card. See Here for more about those extra features.

The heatsink/fan design on the 8200 is unique and highly effective. The heatsink is one piece, and covers both the GPU and RAM. The fan is embedded to cool primarily the GPU. At times the fan can be a bit noisy, but in most cases (meaning computer cases) the noise from the video card fan is overwhelmed by the CPU or PSU fan.

First lets take a look at what the V8200 has to offer:
  • First to offer high resolution, high frame rate, full-scene anti-aliasing (FSAA)
