    Please note Fx5200 here refers to the non-ultra version.

    PS: I know that you would rather go with your own arsenal but this is a Ti4200 Vs Fx5200 Face Off !!

    Geforce 4 Ti 4200 128MB. I'd rather hv a top-of-the-line version of an old gfx card rather than a low-end version of a newer one (forget DX 9 support for this comparo ;) ).

    Ti 4200.....man where is the comparison....you are talking about Cream card and comparing it too some stupid card which cannot even handle the features it has..Even if you had given Geforce 5200 Ultra( personally i own 5700 Ultra ) still my vote goes for ti4200

    im not saying this becoz i too own a ti4200 but This comparison is pointless. How can someone compare between a terribly weak card which doesn’t have enough power to complement its own features, with a card like ti4200 which is a generation behind but yet powerful. :D

    :evil: I got your point. But in so many of the thread people are fighting over which one is better. :evil:

    I know gaming can be viewed as different by different people . . . some may want to look at a little more eye-candy albeit at some choppiness, some may want to play at better frame rates.

    :idea: I want to say that there is not much difference in the visual effects between both the card as there is in raw speed. Take for example Doom 3. For a truly amazing experience you will need a smooth FPS as well.

    FX,MX series = Budget gamers card. Sounds good on paper (fully DX 9 compatible, pixel shaders, etc.) but in reality crawls on any game at 1024 X 768.
    Ti = Awesome card, at ofcourse, an awesome price. Not for the casual gamer. Is still not available at 3K :cry:
    Coming back to LAN games, u need very high fps to stay alive. So a Ti anyday.
