For what the cards do their is nothing special about them, their were gaziillions of GeForce sdrs/ddrs/2/gts/ultra/ti/2mx/4mx440/MX 4000 basically any dx7 NVIDIA card you can buy dirt cheap.
No, but they were the first GeForce, the first 'GPU', the first with hardware T&L, the first with per-pixel lighting etc.
It's the dawn of a new era, so it's historical significance mostly. Building a system with a GeForce 256 gives you a nice hands-on feel of how this new era started.
Well put - the GeForce256, especially DDR, is quite a worthy collector's item.
