    You are talking about RTWC right !! lol

    Nice name though "Storm and Thunder" technology capable agp card.

    Dude i don't have a clue of what your are talking about. Looks like slogan for an advertisement for some graphic card. It is not to be taken techseriously.

    But i'll tell you what a RIVA TNT2 is capable of - playing Directx 6.1 games and earlier . . .

    Todays games need at least a Geforce2 with "hardware transform & lighting" capability. With the prices falling one should at least go for GeforceMX440.

    Well Hardware Transform or Lighting or T&L is a technology implemented into the graphics card which when used will calculate all the transformations ie(moving, resizing rotating 3D models in virtual space) and lighting (lights and shading) in hardware on the GPU and will keep the CPU free for other tasks.

    End result more frames per second in games.

    NVidia TNT2 series including TNT2 M64 is not capable of this that is why it will not run most of the games today.
    T&L starts from the Geforce2 series. eg. Geforce2 MX200, Geforce2 MX400 but these cards are also not recommended.

    Go for atleast Geforce4 MX440 at around 2.5 k
