Hey guys,
anyone has an idea of which is better?
GeForce4 ti4600 128MB 4x AGP
or Geforce FX 5200 128MB 8x AGP ?
My cousin wants to upgrade from a 32MB radeon 7000.

Thanks

unless you are going to go high end FX or radeon get the g4ti the higher end DX 9 cards are barely worth the money and the 5200 is not worth it

personaly i would go with the TI, i have seen better results with the TI, dx9 compatibility is not a big thing right now but it wold be usefull to have for the future, but if u want a good DX9 card go with ATI

Definitely the ti4600, that card will kick the 5200's arse. The 5200's suck pretty bad, you could say they're the new 'mx' cards.

I may actually be insane.

SnookBooger, can you re-size your signature image please. The guidelines state that signature images should be no larger than 75kb, yours is currently 869Kb.

the 4600 is a lot better than the 5200 :)

might not get some effects but it will play faster at higher resolutions.. :D

as for doom3... it is essentially a dx7 level game... so I am not sure your friend will miss out on too many effects... naturally the newer cards will be more efficient and have some new kewl stuff to run the shadows and bump-mapping effects better/faster.. and render some of the other effects while the 4600 can't... BUT... doom3 may still be almost a year away from the looks of it.. :)

also... agp 4x-8x == almost negligible difference in real world performance...

Thanks Sazar, that was very useful, i'm actually using Ti4600 at the moment and it's working very well with all the games around at the moment.

kewl... yah.. save the pennies and buy later in the year/early next year when the new stuff comes out.. if it catches your fancy :)

btw... seeing as you have some stock hsf modding of your video cards cooler going on... perhaps you want to drop some pearls of wisdom in this thread

and help out someone else looking for a little cooling advice ?

cheers :)

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
