    Black rain had posted the whole article, but with cable, it takes forever to load. Making it imposable for dialup users, so thats why posted just the graph reduced by 25%. And thats just a rough guide as to general speed vs speed to give a better idea what he is dealing with.

Take the blue VGA driver CD that MSI provided and throw it way. Go straight to nVidia's website and download 43.45 for directx 8.1. or download 53.03 for directx 9. MSI makes a good video card. They cannot package a driver. nVidia's drivers will install this card as a ti4800, but it will run great. Installs slightly underclocked at 648x297Mhz - will go past the stock 650x300 but not very high. I never overclock my video and this is a nice, fast card."


    This was a review by someone who bought the card...not sure if its valid or not, you tell me, but it says the man could install directx9....

    Thanks

    ^Ok, make that guy was bsing. Or didnt know what he was doing. The question is is if the ti4600 does or doesnt support directx9, or if so, can or cant it utilize it.


    For nvidia cards does the se mean crap or good?

    ti4600 is not DX9 at all.

    As for the "SE", that just means its a slower, budget version of the card, although as RDR said the 5900SE's are pretty good bang for ya buck cards

    So your gonna go with the ti-4600. Well between those 3 I would have to let the warrenty be the desiding factor. So at that point I would have to make the visiontek my first choice as out of those 3 it is the only one that has a true lifetime warrenty (actually not sure about msi), but if you check out pny you will find out there lifetime warrenty is defined as something like the life of the product line. In other words it would be unlikely that they would honor the warrenty on the ti-4600 and I recall in a forum that when they did the guy got a 5600 non ultra as the replacement. Heck I still a LT warrenty on my xtasy ti-500 and mx-420(don't ask).
    Just curious, but what prices are these ti-4600 coming in at. Other than that I wish you luck with you purchase.
