Well, I found some video cards out in my garage and I was wondering if there would be anyway to figure out what their performance is...as in, speed and such, how well they perform. I believe them to be video cards because they have a plug for the monitor on the back...or front, lol. I have 6 different cards. 2 have fans, those being produced by PNY technologies and the other by diamon multi....then 2 have a bunch of chips on the, that say 3D fx interactive, and a bunch of small chips that say 100 mhz. Then the other two have some sort of metal looking rack over part of the card....well thats about all the info I think i can give, unless you need more, just ask. I was just wondering if there was anyway to identify them without any box or anything...just the card itself...

Thankyou for your help.

Well we know you have 3dfx cards, which used to be good and PNY cards which are still good. Is there any numbers like serial numbers or model numbers? Or anything on the back of the cards?

Sorry for the late reply, my connection has been unstable. Let see, on the larger3Dfx cards, there are deffinate S/N's on the back....lol, I think I may have figured out what they run at...Under the S/N and P/N on teh same barcode it says MON3D ll PCl 12mb mosel....does that mean that it is a 12mb card?? And on the PNY cards theres the same things, bu different info. On one of teh PNY cards it says in small text : MON FUSION 16M SGRAM AGP

thanx for your help
