  1. Hey guys,

    i have a little prob.
    I have a MSI GF 4 TI 4200 right now.
    I Got the Point Of View GF 5 FX 5500 as a gift.
    i wonder?
    is this card a better one or not?
    my TI4200 = 128mb DDR
    the FX 5500 = 256mb DDR
    it should be better, but i heard that that is not the case...
    what do you think? is it better or not?

    ps my system is a AMD 2800+ / 1024 mb

    One for the future?

    Just found this rather comprehensive graphics card comparison over at Tom's Hardware which should be helpful - for the future at least, so well worth bookmarking. Click here for the article. Scroll to the bottom for the 'Table of Contents' links for the article & more info.

    It mentions a Ti4200 8x (128Mb, most probably) but unfortunately no FX5500.

    I'd just been looking for similar info as you - a google brought me here! The decision's probably a lot easier for me, as I have to choose between a :dead: (dead?) GF4 Ti4200 64Mb/4x & a secondhand GF5 FX5500 128Mb/8x.

    Also this article (from Tom's as well) may be helpful: How much Graphics Power does a PC Really Need? - Click here. I haven't read it yet, but I'm sure it's going to tell me, as I'm not a gamer, that what I was using/going to get is probably overkill (Tom, you killjoy - take this --> :unch: ).

    Hope this helps & good luck to you,
    G :)
