See this link for all the skinny on benchmarks between all the vid cards and draw your own conclusion.

However, give the two choices in your thread title, I would have to go with the nvidia card based on the performance.

Thanks! :happy:

go for the gf4... both dx8-ish componensts ...the ti4200 is a more powerful component...

but please buy a 128mb gf4 ti4200 card if you can... the extra memory is worth it when you play higher resolutions since more textures can be loaded into memory... it does help :)

me too!

I'm in the same boat here.

I can't afford to go for the 128mb Gf4.

Will the smaller memory on the gf be a problem later on?

not really unless you play @ higher resolutions because textures take up more memory there...

performance @ higher res for a 64mb card is less than a 128mb card with similar other specs... :)

Personaly i like the ATI card, since they are not made by ATI, but rather they are made by the people that created the Game Cube chip. Also my step sister works for ATI so i get discounts, ^^, the 9700 Pro is the way to go, but i cost more, but if you save up you should get the GeForce FX, i will blow you away.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
