    I wanna upgrade from my new TNT2, but i dont know what card to buy, i narrowed down my choice to the following.

    Radeon 7500
    GeForce 4 MX440
    GeForce 3 Ti200
    Radeon 8500LE



    I dont really wanna get the Ti200, or 8500LE cos their both so damn expensive!!!! the cheapest ive seen the Ti200 is $305, and the LE at $370. Any good retailers that sell cheap vid cards>??? cos $300 seems a little ridiculous to me.

    The ti200 will definitely be worth it in the long run. But the mx440 will still give an enormass improvement.

    Since i live in australia pricewatch and newegg arent really options, and video cards here are very expensive.

    Zone computing has some really good prices on video cards. How about the radeon 8500LE? how does that perform in comparison to the GeForce 3 Ti200? ive heard good things about radeon 8500's.

    Between the Ti200 and the 8500 LE, they're both good. ATI has been notorious for crappy drivers in the past, but they are doing much better now and should match if not beat the speed of the Ti200, and it may be cheaper. In some cases, it may go as high as Ti500 speeds with some of the latest drivers. It's a good buy.

    Why not buy the GF4 Ti4200.....you can find those around for well under $200 US

    If you opt for the 128MB (recommended over the 64MB) version of the Ti4200, expect to pay about $200-250

    If you're into overclocking, dont expect the Ti4200 to beat out any stock GF4 Ti4600 cards....but you can sure come PRETTY DAMN CLOSE!

    :thumb: Even if you don't overclock your video card and just use it as its meant to be used, the performance is still MUCH better than your TNT (no to mention, anything in the MX series) :thumb:
