Just my 2 cents:

I bought one a few months ago....put it in a pre-built HP machine...(I know, I know) and had to take it out a few weeks ago.

Had major problems and narrowed it down to the card. The problem was ye 'ole nv4_disp.dll error.

Dont know the brand of the card off hand but it was a Ti4200 with 128 ram.

well, if 9600pro's are down to $150 levels, that might be a better buy. up until now, the 4200 was one of the best deals for budget gamers since it came out (almost a year ago? wow). it was only a matter of time before something else came around and overthrew it.

9600pro is about the same speed or a little faster (i think, right?) and has directx9 hardware support on top of that (gf4ti's are dx8.1). go for it.

eh, this probably isn't your card, then. but if the slowdowns you're experiencing are related to your 64mb of memory, then the 128mb could make a noticeable difference.

otherwise, look at the clock speeds. 4800se = 275mhz core / 550mhz memory. your 4200 64mb should be 250/500 and probably can be overclocked to 275/550 for free.

it's really not worth upgrading for that amount of money. your card i still decent.

but if you have to get one, get a 9600pro.

probably not a fair question... product to product... I would wager the 9600pro is a superior product to any gf4 ti series card... especially once overclocking, filtering and shader intensive operations come into play...

day to day 3d gaming with no filtering enabled... they are about on par...

the 9600pro @ the moment is probably the best bang for the buck along with the 9500pro if you can find one...
