ati 9500 pro 128mb ddr dual
what nvidia card will this compeare to
sazar are u out there???????????
ati places the 9500 pro v/s the gf4 ti 4200 but it actively competes v.s the 4600/4800 series (one and the same thing)
plus it has full DirectX 9 support, and superior image quality when compared to the GeForce 4s
I always thought that the 4800 was a Ti4200 with 8X AGP....
well u learn something new every day huh =P
ti 4200 == ti 4200 agp8x except for agp 8x support and higher clock speeds for the agp 8x board
ti 4600 == ti 4800 both are identical other than agp 8x support
ti 4400 == ti 4800se both are identical other than agp 8x support
the 4800 cards have the same clocks as their respective non agp 8x counterparts...
would the 9500 be a better card than the nvidia one?? they are the same price and it is an asus 4800se for the nvidia one
4800SE == a 4400...
the 9500pro is a better card
in terms of raw performance the 4600 and 9500pro are similar...
but with AA and AF turned on the 9500pro starts trotting away...
cool thank you and my friend says thank you too LOL
I was waiting for someone to say something as clear as that... I'm definitely getting the 9500pro - just gotta wait for my refund from my car insurance for doing the pass-plus
pretty much all the benches i'm looking at put the 9500pro and ti4200-8x neck-and-neck. only when you turn AA or AF up does the 9500pro come out ahead.
and for 50% more money? eh... i'm still happy with my 4200, thanks. i'll leave AA off and simply leave my resolution at the high end.
cheapest I've seen a ti4200 is about £120 (inc vat)
cheapest I've seen a 9500pro is £136 (inc vat)
perhaps not 50%, but still more - although I think its worth it tbh
of course you could always Get a Lone and build an UBER system like mine
took me a while, but I figured out u meant loan (thought u meant get alone - which made no sense)
but id sooner a pc that doesnt need 4 case fans thx (i.e. an intel )
and I bet you use that machine just to email, post here and chat too lol
LOL, nah i took 1 of the case fans out but my comp still sounds like ballistic missile.
still cant beat my performance, 17450 3d marks 8590 in 2003.
hmm... must be different availability in your part of the country. cuz a 4200-8x goes for about $115 here and a 9500pro... about $170.
they are about 10$ difference from where i am ordering them from
i'm curious... can you show me the site?
just curious. does the "se" tag on the nvidias mean "slower edition"? because all of the "se" cards are slower than their non-se counterparts.
