Hey guys, I was wondering if any of you had a gf4 mx, and if you do, could you tell me if its worth it or not. Right now I only have a tnt2, and I only have about $100 to spend on a video card, so you think that gf4mx is worth it for me? I mostly program/watch opengl demos and my tnt2 barely gets 10 fps on a lot of them. So is it good for 3d gfx?

under alot of conditions it''s not as powerfull as a GF3, and in some cases it performs worse than a gf2ti

I''d go with a gf3ti200 (in fact i did) as most ti200s are overclockable to the same speed as a ti500 anyways, its not much slower than a gf4 and out performs a gf4mx

I thought the GF4MX had a better fill-rate than the 3TI 200? Anyway, I''ve decided to wait until the GF5 comes out (running a GF2MX at present for home, with a GF3Ti 200 at work). In fact, I will probably time my GFX card upgrade with the release of Doom III

Still, I''m not sure if buying an ATI card would be a better idea. Anyone have an opinion here? I''ve been with NVIDIA since the TNT but they keep leap-frogging each other in terms of speed\features.

lol i have a gf2mx too (i got it way back when i just thought "hey, its a 64mb card its the best on the market" but now im smarter )

anyway i was thinking of doing it like u, getting the newest card that there is right when doom III comes out so i can have an opengl 2 compatable card

btw, when is DOOM3 coming out?

I''ve always been an NVIDA fan but I decided to buy an ATI Radeon 8500 128 MB when I found one brand new for $150 US. All the features that card has easily justifies that price. The card is a beauty except for the drivers.
