    i know that radeon 9100's are based on 8500 chipset which were in close competition with the GeForce 3 Ti s.
    i actually advised a friend of mine to buy one and he did, for a 100$.
    i wanna make sure that i guided him in a good direction.
    thanx for replies:cheers: :wow:

    :D

    For a budget card, the Radeon 9100 is a damn good card, it based on the old 8500 card which outperforms the Geforce 3 Ti 500 now with the new drivers, and comes close to the Geforce 4 Ti4200. Make sure you don't get a jibbed up one, been hearing reports of 9100 cards being sold with slower ram and cores.
    Overall, the 9100 card will run any current DirectX 8.1 games fine, but it will struggle with new games that use DirectX 9, but even the Geforce 4 Ti series will struggle.

    :shoot3:

    thnx for the replies folks.
    it is a better card than he used to have anyway and is prices very moderately.
    i wonder why nvidia would't produce ti500 cores anymore like ati does the 8500.
    Were there ever 128mb ti500 cards... never heard of one...
    i liked the way my Gainward ti500 (even 550MHz ram speed with ease) played until it got burned, (thunderstruck) than i bought gf4 mx440

    :devil:

    Powersurges can be a *****, sad to hear you lost a Geforce Ti 500, they were expensive buggers when they came out. There were a few 128 meg models released of the Ti 500, but most of them were Ti 200, mainly due to the cost and the introduction of the geforce 4 Ti series. Some manufacturers even released a 256 Meg Geforce 4 Mx 440 cards, such a waste~! :drool:

    nVIDIA don't make anything as they're a FAB'less company, they only design and get someone else to make.

    For a ,"weak card"(9100 -9200series.) I'd say that its pushing C&C generals along verysmoothly.:thumb: :rofl:

    back when the new reviews( computer gaming world, websites,gameing websites...etc...) of doom 3 came out the reviews were like and I quote this,"This is the game that will force us to upgrade to geeforce 3 ti cards just to play it!!!" With that being said I really cannot understand why people would say that the 9100 radeon or 9200 radeon or even the 8500 would be a weak card, as clearly they are twice or 3x times better than the geforce 3 ti card. But when doom 3, which I've hear is going to be very graphical intense, would require a geeforce 3 ti or better card to operate and you say that the 9100 is only good for most desktop applications? :confused:
