    My step mom bought a custom built system with a ASUS V8420 Geforce 4 TI4200 64meg video card.

    I have a Redeon 8500 64meg video card.

    She is going to use the ASUS for text based stuff ! She said that she would give me the ASUS and I could give her the Readeon !

    So the question is .... What card is better ???? :D

    The Asus Geforce 4 is better then the Radeon Card.

    gf4 ti is a little faster than the radeon, but not by a big margin. i'd go by features and which one you're more partial to.

    i believe they are both directx 8.1 cards, so no extra eye candy. some people say the radeon's have better image quality, but i don't know if that's still true. if you have and use tv-out or a 2nd vga-out on your radeon, the gf4 most likely won't have either one. but the gf4 has a little more muscle.

    plus that wolfman demo is pretty sweet. }:>

    Another vote for the GF4. It has more muscle and even thought ATI driver support has greatly improved it still is not what Nvidia's is.
