You mixing stuff , GF4 was DX8 up to PS 1.3 card it was comepeting with Radeon 8500Pro DX8 with 1.4 !
Now Radeon 9700Pro was next gen owning all GF4's , it had 256bit bus , full DX9 support and fast AA /AF , Nvidia was suppose to bring 5800 but was awefully late only later refreshes 5900+ were damage control
