I am trying to decide between a geforce 4 mx 440 64mb pci or an ati radeon 7500 64 mb pci. my budget is 80.00 max. trying to keep the overall costs under 250.00. So far i have shelled out 131.00 for Mobo, cpu, and burn in with shipping. 18.00 for 300w PSU.

If it's for your Geforce3 Ti rig, don't bother, the Ti beats the **** out of both.

I'd go for the ATi because of brand name, it's not like you'll ever use them to their fullest extent in surfing the web.

Hmmm, 9200 and se. Isn't that an oxymoron?

If all you're building is a surfing machine buy a used tnt card for $20.

sorry I don't mean to bash its just that most anyone you ask about gfx cards will say don't get a mx as you can get a better quality card for about the same amount of $.

the geforce 4 mx 440 isnt a bad card
its like 40$ ive picked them up for OEM
they run good
can run most games smoothly unless u run high res and hig detail etc... its not a gaming card but its a decent card for the price

There are GeForce4 Ti4200 64MB flavors on NewEgg for 80ish, if you want to spend a few dollars more.

The thing with MX is, older versions anyway, it is/was not fully compliant with newer versions of DirectX. They also have slower clock and memory speeds. They are fine for websurfing, e-mail, or the occasional frag-fest -- but you won't see blazing FPS.

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
