GeForce 3 Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce 3 is a very old GPU part of the GeForce 3 Series released by NVIDIA in 2001.
It only supports DirectX up to 8.1 so even DirectX 9 games are most likely unplayable.
That being said, the 64MB video memory and very low core clock doom its performance from the start. Therefore, almost all today's games are unplayable, even at the lowest settings.
