They caan be had for a little over $100US and would still be good for a processor upgrade later on. Your 800 will not max it out but it will take a lot of processes from the cpu. Which will give you good frame rates because the cpu has less work to do. I aint signing nothing!!! | Report abuse Rubberbband November 18, 2002 1:36:32 PM Get a GF4 Ti4200. THat way if you do a mobo/cpu/mem upgrade in 6 months, you'll be able to use the video card for a while.

Just because of DirectX 8.1 support? The Ti4200 performs better than the 8500 at default and is a better overclocker. <font color=red>I´m starting to feel like a real computer consultant.</font color=red> | Report abuse Crashman Graphics card Expert November 19, 2002 11:10:43 AM They perform about equally, 8500 has 8.1 support, I think Trueform will continue to be added to new games, and the 8500 has better TV-out. <font color=blue>You're posting in a forum with class.
