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

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.

Yeah, I wouldn't call a Ti4200 or 9500Pro "budget" cards. Those are some of the fastest cards on the market.. Wish I had the cash for a 9500Pro as well as the four hard drives I need :eek: but I can't afford either.. :(
