[RESOLVED] Video Card On a BUDGET
GeForce4 TI 4200 128MB vs RADEON 9500PRO 128MB
which one do i buy, i have a 1.2 ghz athlon 133mhz, 256megs of ddr ram 266mhz,
and currently have a Geforce 2 Mx400 64 megs of ram, and its not the greatest card.
Ive heard theres not a big diff from the ti4200 to the ti4600 to justify the price.
i whould love the ATI RADEON 9700 Pro but its a little out of my price range
any help whould be great thanks
my 3dmark right now is 2700 with that setup what will the upgrade give me roughly

First off ,I want your budget
Your question has clearly been answered by THIS THREAD ,get the Radeon 9500PRO.

after some research i might go with ati 9000 ive read that it out performs the ti42000

The 9000 doesn't, the 9500 Pro most definitely does though. It's a fairly easy choice to make; the 9500 Pro is about Ti4600 speed overall and substantially faster when using FSAA and anisotropic filtering.
On that rig I'd guess 7000-7500 3DMarks, max at default settings.
P.S. Welcome to HWC.

First place you should look is www.pricewatch.com. When you find a price you like, look at the retailer and go to www.resellerratings.com to find out if they're trustworthy or not.
Or you could just save time and go to www.newegg.com. Newegg provides good service and good prices.
