Many users were pulled in by the sub $150 AUD price thinking they couldn't go wrong. Budget users have only really had the TNT2 M64 card to choose from, unless they wanted to opt for the more expensive TNT2 Ultra or GeForce 256. Since the advent of the GeForce2 GTS chipset by nVidia, users have seen a wicked price drop in the price of the TNT2 Ultra based cards, many have opted to go with the TNT2 Ultra instead of the GeForce 256 or GeForce2 GTS.

For $108 USD from Universal Computer Distributing you can have your own Visiontek GeForce2 MX.
