Neither Max Payne 2 or NFS:U have any DX9 elements in them. I know NFS:U is at most DX8.1 and I'm pretty sure Max Payne 2 is a combonation of DX7/DX8... somewhat like UT2003. As far as I know, OpenGL 2.0 doesn't even have a finalized set of specifications yet. The GeForce4 Ti series has fallen into the legacy sector of video cards, but is still a long way from being outdated. Especially when ATi and nVIDIA are churning out poor-excuses-for-DX9-capability video cards such as the GeForceFX 5200 and Radeon 9200.
