If you can collect a few more nickles before you buy, go for a GeForece4 Ti4200

I use the GF4 MX440 as a budget board now and would be the pick of the group. In fact this one (http://www.leadtek.com/graphics/a170ddrt/a170ddrt.htm).

depending on where you live - a 3rd party Radeon9000 may be the same price as a GF4MX440 - plus it offers hardware DX8 support and matches or beats the GF4MX in most benchmarks

I appreciate the suggestions, but I can only afford one of the three I listed above. And as its not for my main pc, im not that interested in spending more at this time.

That 3d mark graph only showed one of them - the 64MB GF2 MX400. Does no one have anything to say about the other cards?

If that's all you can afford then go with the 64MB DDR RADEON 7500 Le W/TV as that would probably just edge out the GF4 MX420 W/TV based on the laters more crippled memory bus though either would eat the GF2MX400. :smokin:

64MB DDR RADEON 7500 Le W/TV is the card I use and it is a good budget card but only because I am poor:( lol. but on the upside it has great tv out and performs well at 32bit depth as well you can overclock it for some boost.
