Just some quick questions.

Would going from a GF4 Ti4200 64 mb to GF4 Ti4200 128 mb be worth it (for the money)? I'm sure my current 64mb card will probably run PS but I was wondering if going up to 128 would really make a difference.

And is a GF4 Ti4600 128mb THAT much better than a GF4 Ti4200?

not worth it in any way shape or form m8

64 - 128 will see no differecne whatsoever in my opinion.

the ti4600 is not worth buying over a ti4200 - if you want a new gfx card buy something along the lines of the Rdeon 9500Pro or 9700 :)

Oi that would be so nice if you could just plop down another stick of DDR onto the card itself. Anyway, I also wanted to add if a GeForce FX would be worth it.

GOD NO, since they won't be selling the top-end model. You should wait at least one more hardware generation before even CONSIDERING an upgrade. A GF4 is not yet a weak piece of hardware by any stretch of the imagination.

It's pretty weak to me...

the GF 4 card just plain suck at AA and FA.

Well, before That Which Is The 9700 PRO came along, it was considered quite good at AA. :p I'd still wait another hardware generation or so. If he needs to upgrade now, a 9700/9800 would definitely be the way to go.

i would upgrade to a 128 MB Vid card nomater what brand you chose. simply because alot of newer games are adding in features that ONLY Cards with 128MB of Vid Memory can even see... such as the nice and new Reflective water in DAOC... if you dont have a 128 MB vid card all you see is the flattextured see/threw blue crap, but if you have 128MB Vid Card, you get the nice, cool looking reflective crystal clear water.

yes a 64MB card will more than likely handle PS withough being boged down, but you may miss out on some eye-candy if you dont get a 128MB card.


its all depends on if you want to spend the money to see all the extras, or stay with what you have and possible not see all the eye-candy the 128MB users see.
