    it could probably play the game, but you'd have to go to a low res.. like 800x600 or 1024x768 at most.

    I've got a Geforce2 GTS and it isn't enough really. Playable, but not that well in MP. Buy a radeon 9700.

    You can get a Ti4200 for around $100, maybe under $100 if you really look, it would be well worth it.

    I would go for something a little higher than that if you are looking to play graphics intensive games like UT2k3.

    There are other NVidia cards that can be had for not much more that will fetch better performance.

    I got a GF2 GTS as well, but mine's 32MB..anywayas it runs OK at 1024, just make sure the color's are set to 16BIT

    I havent played UT3 much but I played it for a bit it seemed fine with my card

    oh and I have a 1600XP+ with 512DDR Ram

    I have a similar card and I've played UT2003 with it - it works fine but then again I usually run at fairly low resolutions :o
