My friend said he will sell me his lead tech winforce gforce 4600 a250 card for 60 bucks. It is the one with 128 memory and has that heat-sink wraped around the card with 2 fans on it. Is this a good deal,and if I buy it do I use the latest nvidia drivers for it. I was thinking about putting it in my son's computer. Thx for any help,

hehe. Pretty much same thing is gonna happen to me tomorrow. Im getting a g4 ti 4600 ultra for $110 used. Upgrading from G3 Ti 500 :)

I think Ill save the g3 ti 500 for my bro, when he gets the money, so I can make him a decent pc. He's currently on a celeron 333mhz?

Oh, and I'll buy it from YOU for $70! How does THAT sound? You'd get $5 pure profit, with no effort! :D

Man, that's a nice deal, takovr. My TI4200 overclocks like mad (almost 30% faster then stock speeds), so I can't imagine how good your card would clock with that mega-doom-cooling with 2 fans. You might even be able to beat out a 9800xt in a majority of raw benchmarks with that card ;)

Well I bought the card from my friend, I was just wondering is the new g-force fx cards alot better then the g-force 4 cards ?

A TI4600 is probably about equal to an FX5600 card, maybe a little faster. The FX5900 is...hmm, probably about twice as fast (I think). But the FX cards have faster AA, and have DX9 features.

I loved my Leadtek 4600, i've always been an NV guy but not quite a fan boi :) I'm the type that can see that ATI do some stuff well and NV do some stuff well but I always go for NV :)

It's a great deal :D

4600 is good, and faster than the 5600/9600's in many things (probably closer to 9500 Pro/5700 Ultra/9600 XT in non-DX9, non-Quality tests), but falls behind rather quickly once AA/Ansio comes into play. And sadly that's about the performance area where I'd WANT to see quality, so now I think it gets short shrift.

But for $60? Who the hell cares? Hook that baby up! Hehe...

For cards in general, my advice is to never develop preferences. (At least undue ones.) Keep your eyes open and be a smart shopper. The tech industry, and certainly THIS part of it, changes way too fast.
