Hi all,
I am thinking to upgrade my video card from TNT2.
and just wondering, which card will perfect match my current system ? (won't upgrade CPU)

As we know, there is useless to get GF4 TX4600 on PIII 800, right?

so, any suggestion to me ?
my system config:
PIII 800, 256 SD Ram 80G HDD.

Thx again !

I would suggest a G4 4200. 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!!!

I recently replaced my GF2 MX for a GF4 Ti4200 on my p3 850 system (113x7.5). My 3D mark score is now 6509 where it used to be around the 2600 area. Im soon upgrading my comp to an axp though.

I'd get a Radeon 8500, the full version is under $100, and it's a better card than the Ti4200.

Just curious, why do you think the 8500 is a better card than the 4200, Crashman?
Just because of DirectX 8.1 support? The Ti4200 performs better than the 8500 at default and is a better overclocker.

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.
