What would you say this is comparable to?

Alrighty.

So my system is running a GF4 Ti4600. I was wondering if anyone knew what this might compare to in the GF FX series, performance-wise. I'm looking at upgrading just about every part of my system, but a new graphics card raises the price quite a bit, if I look at getting another top-of-the-line.

So what is it, folks? Better than a 5200? 5600? or am I running completely inferior hardware now? ;)

Any info/links to benchmarks/etc. is appreciated. Thanks guys!

Hold onto the Ti4600 for a while longer... wait until the next gen of cards come out based on nVidia's NV40, and ATi's R420...

But if you had to buy now, I'd go for a Radeon 9600 Pro

I believe the Ti4600 performs close, more or less, to about the standards of a FX5700, me thinks. Maybe FX5600. ;)

I think it's always best to stick with the one you got already if it's fairly new and skip a generation or two before you get a new one.
I wouldn't replace my Ti4200 with the FX series that is currently on the market as I can't see any major benefits of them over the Ti series. Obviously there are benefits, but is it really worth a few hundred bucks?

Thanks everyone. From the sounds of the advice, I'll just hang onto the card I have now. Should last me for a while longer, so that'll save me some money. :) Thanks for the help!

The only time you will have to replace your current Ti4600 is if you decide to play more DirectX 9 intense games.

If that happens you'll have to go for at least a Radeon 9600 Pro or higher Radeon

or GeforceFX 5700 or higher nVidia

just to get better than what you got.

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
