    What would be the best video card to be used with a athlon 1600+ xp, that is under $350 and NOT an MX of any discription?
    And how long is it likely to take for the GeForce4 Ti's to drop in price?

    Here in Sydney even though prices vary store to store 64MB GF3 Ti200's are just under the $300 mark at most good stores and the 128MB versions just over.
    There are still a few around with GF3 Ti500's and these are in the $350-$375 bracket which the 64MB GF4 Ti4200's are at also as well as the lower clocked 64MB Radeon 8500 versions. :smokin:

    The Ti200 is by far yesterday's technology. If you can swing a GF4Ti4200, then grab one up and overclock the hell out of it. I was able to take a 64MB card to 310/610 straight out of the box! To put things in proportion, the GF4Ti4600 comes with a stock speed of 300/650. Not bad for half the money. :)

    If ya found one of the original GF3's then they are a step above the GF3 Ti200's and a step below the Gf3 Ti500's but still a high performance card just the same but they don't have Ti at all in their name. :smokin:

    I've got both a Radeon8500 and a GF3Ti200 - there very similarly priced in my area (very close to ATi headquarter - I don't know if that makes a difference).
    With the new drivers - the Radeon beats the GF in just about every thing I run (WinXP Pro platform) - & I've tried each card in both my boxes. It's especially good with AF maxed out - not as good with AA cranked up - so i may depend on how you prefer to run.

    I'd take a GF4Ti4200 over either of them though - the Abit and MSI versions are only about $50-60cdn more.

    Well in australia the Ti200 is alot cheaper than the radeon 8500 for some stupid reason. The 8500 costs about the same as the Ti4200. Still waiting for an answer on where Segiy found a GeForce 3 for $175AUD because i dont believe it
