I keep reading the reviews on Geforce FX 5600 and compare it with Ti 4200 and 4600...

In many ways and words it sounds like the "Ti"-cards are better, only the FX 5900 can truly kick them, or??...

The "Ti"-cards have better fill rate, but do the "FX"-cards balance that up in another way? And how much do the CineFX do on older games? And The AA doesn't seem too top notch on the "FX"-cards..but are they better on the "Ti"-cards? or...

Who will actually gain on exchanging the "Ti"-card to a "FX"-card, 5600 or 5200...? I can understand that the 5900 is a different matter.......

Have you tried it? Any major difference?

first of all... an alpha is no representation of the final code... if you are judging the purchase of a product based on this it is completely fallacious :)

a reworking of that idealogy may be in order..

secondly... and this is the MAIN point... doom III == opengl... NOT direct x...

as far as the game is concerned... doom III is for all intents and purposes a dx7 LEVEL game... there are a few specific features that newer cards will be able to handle better/faster than older cards..

the best of the bunch will be the 5600ultra ( at least the re-spun version) since it is about as fast as the ti4600 and it also has dx9 support...

this is the way I would rank them...

5600ultra == gf4 ti 4600 > gf4 ti 4200 > 5600 non-Ultra...

note : 5600ultra == gf4 ti 4600 in dx8 and below... in dx9 5600ultra > gf4 ti 4600...

hope this helps...

Thanks Sazar!

It does... As I run the Ti4200 I will not notice any REAL difference unless I get myself a 5900... But those cost abit :eek:

Then I have to consider if it is worth the money... :rolleyes:

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
