    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

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    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.

    If the R9K Pro suits your budget then go for it as it's a good one and certainly much better than the GF4 MX's at the same price that only support DX7.1.
