Geforce FX 5200
 
I'm thining about getting a new graphics card. today i saw a Geforce FX 5200 from MSI in a computer shop.. going for about £55

Is it worth it or should i wait until i start seeing the 5700?

Well, the Geforce FX 5200 is slower than a Geforce 4 Ti 4200 but the difference is that the Geforce FX 5200 does directx 9 but in a very uncompetetive way, slow, not worth it, and definitaly unplayable. If I were you I would wait for the Geforce FX 5700.

ok thanks :)
i currently have a gf4 ti 4200, i will wait till i see a 5700, i looked at dabs, the same place i got the ti 4200, but no images available. dont think its out just yet :s

i will then replace the gf3 ti200 with the ti4200,

is a gf3 ti200 better than a gf4 mx440?

Yes, the GF3 Ti 200 is faster than a GF 4 MX440 because the MXs use directx 7 and the geforce 3 ti 200 uses directx 8. If you compare a directx 7 game using this two cards both will run them the same speed, if not the the gf 3 ti 200 will be faster and if you will play directx 8 games the gf 4 mx 440 will choke and the gf 3 ti 200 WINS :) :)

:eek: no way :p
the ti4200 will go into he rig drow sold to me.. the gf3 ti200 will then go into the family's rig and the gf4 mx440 will probaby be backup ;p those graphics cards come in handy ;)

however i have a 64mb gf2 mx400 laying around somewhere, also a 64mb voodoo 5 5500, a 4mb pci S3 Virge.. the ram chips on it are huge.. i think they are 512k each, its up in a box somewhere.
