It's pretty good, but why not just go with a Geforce 4 ti4200-4600? :afro:

You should just stick with the 4200, it's a good deal, and will most likely outperform your 9000

Yes the Ti4200 board will beat out the Radeon 9000 board, but they're in two different categories really. But if you can afford a Ti4200 board, then you might want to look into the Radeon 9500 Pro instead. It will outperform the Ti4200 board and is already capab;e of handling those DirectX 9 chores that will be coming down the like sometime in the near future. Prices of these boards are generally only about $20 or so higher then the nVidia based one so it is even in the same price range.
