I am thinking of upgrading my good old Geforce Ti4200 64MB card.
Can you guys recommend a good upgrade.
I was thinking ATI Radeon 9600 pro 256MB or 9800 pro 128MB
which one would be better among the two?
My budget is 75-100$. If the card is really good might go higher.
My main purpose of use is for games and photoshop.
9800 pro 128 MB is better out of those two. But u wont get that for below, say $150, that too tough to find. U might find second hands at that price.
If you want a 9600 XT 128MB (which is faster than the pro), i have one for $100. But 9800 pro is better bcos it has 256bit memory etc.

No go, showboat.
Ti4600 is a dead duck.
Get the real deal.Take the Jet up on his offer, or go get something DX9 ready.
The 4600 can't pull off the stunts it once could.
I have one shelved. I know.
That lil dog couldn't poot 18,000 on Aquamark 3.
Thanx guys. I was looking at pricewatch prices and deciding. Turns out that 9800 pro were 133$, but they are just 9800s not pro.
Decision time. Priyajeet, gimme some time, I'll let you know if I wanna buy the 9600 xT.
Be carefull: MANY manufacturer's are releasing FAKE 9800's and 9800 Pro's using 128-bit memory interface:
9800 Pro 256-bit 128MB normally cost around $190
9800 Pro 128-bit 128MB normally cost around $150
9800SE normally cost around $130.
9800's are also supposed to have a 256-bit memory interface.
Here's the difference:
128-bit means 1/2 the memory performance
SE is normally 128-bit with 1/2 the rendering pipelines cut.
So the 9800SE is really comparable to the 9600 non-pro. The 9800 Pro 128-bit is really comparable to the 9600 Pro.
If you can find a 9800 non-pro that's not an SE, you have a good card, the same as the 9800 Pro but clocked down only slightly.
