    Well, since the GeForce4 MX is a GeForce2MX++, I don't think the 128MB will help much.:thumbs do

    Better look for other card, like the Radeon 9x00 or a GeForce4 Ti4200.

    ive got the AGP 4x version of that card and i can score appox 2000 more 3D marks than with my old 64Mb geforce 2 mx 400

    get it if you dont need the latest card but dont spend to much on it

    if you intend on playin new games you may want to consider lookin for a better card like Unforgiven{BGF} suggested

    There not bad cards but they're only DX7 compliant and my R9K (DX8) is faster though my GF4 Ti4200's leave both in the dust.

    Sorry if it seems that I was telling they were bad, no, I got a GeForce2MX 32MB, and I can play WC3 in medium quality, my point was that for the same price (or less) you could buy a Radeon9000, which is better than the GF4MX.

    Moving to Video Card section.

    Personally, like a lot of people, I can't see the point in getting a GF4MX.

    dont mean to shoot down nvidia's budget cards but sorry, They suck! my geforce 2 mx200 (i know its old) but it is a really bad card, the geforce 4mx's are a lot better but i dont really trust and vid card with mx in it anymore, same with the fx5200 (unless its the ultra) just my opinion, im lookin at sumthin like a 9000/9100/9200 which so far seems to be a lot better choice unless i save the pennies for a ti4200.

    If ya get a radeon9000, make sure it's a pro. I'm real happy with it. 6357 on 3d '01 and 1245 on 3d '03.(non pro managed 3790 3d '01) My other choice in the same price range was msi gf4 mx440 128mb vivo. I was upgrading from a radeon7000 64mb vivo.(that card really sucked) Although it did have environment bump mapping(dx8.0), that did not make up for the bad performance. I wished I had a gf2 mx that time around. Even thats 100% better than r7000. The r9000 and pro are dx8.1 which is quite up to date.
    Heard too many horror stories about r9100, it's not even on ati's site at all.(strange)
    I'm not sure but I think the r9200 will go the way of the r7200 real quick.(it's no real improvement from the r9000 except agp 8x and everybody is pushin the non pro). :thumbs do

    edit: well this may be neat link but the non pro scares me even with 256mb, whats with the passive cooling???
