I have tested both cards and the older (Gainward) Geforce4 ti 4600 outperforms the MSI Geforce4 Ti4800SE in all benchmarks. As i suppose the Gainward Ti-4600 has a faster clock.
I have an 8X motherboard (AOPEN AK77-8XN)
with AMD Athlon 2500+ barton Processor and 1 GB of DDR-RAM @ 333MHz
I wanted to know which card then i should go for the MSI Geforce4 ti 4800SE-8X or the Gainward Geforce4 ti 4600-4X.
Please help me i am still confused on which one to select from the above two.
becoz u see on one hand I have a faster card and on the other hand I have an 8X-AGP card.
I currenlty own a palit Daytona Geforce3 Ti-200 (128 MB) and is showing its limitations in new games.
The geforceTi series were all originally 4xAGP. Later they made 2 Ti4800 series with 8xagp. However that agp is the only thing new about them. The Ti4800 is the exact same card as the Ti4600 but with 8xagp instead of 4xagp. Likewise the Ti4800SE is the exact same card as the Ti4400 but with 8xAGP instead of 4xagp. The 8x over 4x is almost completly a marketing thing since its the card itself that makes most difference and not the difference between 4 or 8xagp. So the Ti4600 is still the better card then the Ti4800SE since the Ti4800SE, as I said, is a Ti4400 card which is inferior.
