Ok im just wondering, since they both have 64 megs, and are almost the same price, which is better.
The MX420 by MILES! The 7000 is = to a TNT2 Pro in benchmarks & such.
Having said that: the GF2 MX400 is only a little behind the GF4 MX420 & is also better than the 7000. The only *plus* the 7000 has is DDR & it still can't keep up w/the MX's.
I can tell you're 'stuck' w/a PCI card (that's what the 7000 & MX420 are) & I'm in the same boat. Get a GF & not the 7000. I did & since I've seen comparisons: I'm glad I didn't get the 7000! :grinthumb
I've spoken to PNY & was told that when the 'new' nVidia chips come out: there will be a hi-performance PCI card in the release. I got a GF2 MX400 in the meantime.
Note: MX & 7000's are budget cards.

Geforce 4mx = Radeon 8500 ?
IS the radeon 8500, better, than gf3 or gf4?
ATI hypes new "Catalyst" driver sets for the Radeon
What is the current top of the line leader in pci video cards. I know that mx 420 is near the top, but the AGP slot has taken a huge majority of the newer and faster cards.(and for good reason) Who can claim the top of the pci cards? Poor people like myself should save themselves the torture of looking at all the pretty new mobos, chips, and vid cards.
