    i go with the ti4200 too, but If u want the "direcX 9" feature, u can get the fx5200. but i believe 4200 bets teh fx5200 by a bit

    The Ti4200 annihilates the 5200, it is not a good buy.

    FX5900 - 3DMark2001 [20,566] - 3DMark2003 [7,281] - Aquamark3 [56,694]

    Even tho I am an Nvidia guy, I don't recommend the 5200 OR the 5600. ATI just has cards that easily beat them for the same price or less.

    The reason i dont want a radeon is because i wanna get an nForce2 mobo, the won recently reviewed rite here on tweaktowne, (DFI nforce2 ultra). to my knowledge, an nforce 2 mobo is optimized for nvidia. is my idea wrong or what?
