    No dx9. But this r9700pro does. These are getting hard to find as well.

    Well okay. Based on price range of 160 to say 200.

    198 for a 9700 pro
    169 for a 5700u
    ~185 for a 5900xt (depends on brand)
    189 for a 5900se

    and if you manage say 212 you could get a 9800 pro. Sorry no links, but you can go to newegg and look them up.

    now I believe with all of these you would have dx9 support and a faster card then your ti-4600.

    Alright alright alright to stop annoying the devil dude one last question. I'm goin with the ti4600. I just need know which of these to go with. They all cost the same and are identical in specs, just a choice between brands-and possibly software I dont know about-but for now just weigh in the brand:

    GeForce4 Ti4600 Video Card (128MB, AGP 8X, 2D/3D w/DVI & S-Video)
    (Microstar/MSI) - (Video Cards)

    Verto GeForce4 Ti4600 AGP 128MB DDR 2D/3D
    (PNY) - (Video Cards)

    XTASY GeForce4 TI4600 AGP 128MB DDR 3D/TV Video Card
    (VisionTek) - (Video Cards)

    Have fun

    First off, when looking at benchmarks make sure they are run in the graphics mode you want to run in. I.e. Resolution, color depth, AA, and AF levels.

    maximus7001's graph shows 1024x768, but probably no AA or AF. Which improve picture quality drastically, but tend to impact performance great.

    Also, maximus7001 would you mind posting a link to that review?

    I would post links for the cards but my computer is having issues at the moment. For now, you can find some if not all of them at www.NewEgg.com.
    If the stuff in glow sticks is truly toxic then why do they make so many flavors?

    I've picked up a few fx5900se's lately (eVGA's) - right now they're one of my favourites in the "best bang for the buck" catagory

    they can easily be found for around the $180-190usd range

    RDR is right the cheaper 5900's are great and with an easy bios flash found here http://www.techangel.co.uk/forums/sh...&threadid=2111
    sorry if not meant to paste links to other websites, i flashed mine was a piece of cake now runs at same speeds as 5950ultra 475 and 950 but seems no end to how high you can push it had it upto 550 and 1020 but started to notice some screen rips so dont really want to be going higher than that. 1 bad thing doing the flash u will loose your tv-out but if never use it dont worry used to score around 5250 in 3dmark 03 after flash highest i got was 6047. recommend this card to anyone plays all games max settings with antialising and antistrpoic on reckon they must be pretty cheap as well now these cards.

    Was it necessary with a second thread?

    I'd get the first card, MSI. :2cents:
