GF3 ti200 vs GF4 Ti4200

How much of a performance difference am I gonna see if I replace my current GF3 ti 200 64MB with a GF4 ti 4200 128MB? Would it be worth replacing the GF3 with the GF4??

Intel P4 2.4B
MSI 645E Max-U Mobo
512MB DDR333
GF3 ti200 64MB
SB Live 5.1

  1. Yes big difference, worth it, but you'd see a BIGGER difference with the Radeon 9600 PRO for a few bucks more.

    If you're going to upgrade, you might as well upgrade to DirectX 9 while you're at it.

    Geforce3 to Geforce4 is faster, that's it. 9600 PRO will give you a little longevity.

  2. I am in a similar situation, but I'm going to hold out for the new cards later this spring.

  3. I don't weant to spend the money on a 9600Pro right now. I can get the ti4200 for around $25 USD, thats why I am interested in it.

    Thanks for the reply though.

  4. Wao you must be very lucky if you can find a geforce 4 ti 4200 with such a low price.Buy it. :eek: (As i can understand it must be a second hand but that is not a problem,i suggest you before you take it to test if it works fine.)
  5. Yeah, for $25 USD that's a no brainer.

    You'll see a very nice difference in performance. :)

  6. I changed my mind and bought an Radeon 9600XT. With a coupon for HL2 :smile:

    ATI Radeon 9600XT 128MB

  7. You will have to wait till summer to get HL2.
  8. Thats alright...I figure its worth the extra to get the game. Plus, the other card I was looking at last night was the GF FX5600 256MB for about $70 CAD less, but it performs worse, and doesn't include a HL2 coupon.

    Overall, I'm pretty impressed with the difference its made in games. Far Cry went from 20-25FPS to 40-45FPS in outdoor environments, with all details set to high at 1024x768x32.

  10. I thought they stop giving out HL2 coupon for 9600XT.(card maker had to pay to get them)

    Which brand is your card?

    Asus A7N8X Deluxe, Xp 2500+(3200+), 512MB RAM, HIS Radeon 9500Pro
  11. I got the ATI Radeon 9600XT, which cost a bit more, but the cost difference is made up for by the fact that I get HL2 (When released), as well as the Valve Premier Pack via STEAM(which includes Half-Life, Counter Strike, Team Fortress Classic, Deathmatch Classic, Half-Life®: Opposing Force and Ricochet)
