Default Re: Faster then a 4600TI..

Your Ti4600 utterly crushes the FX5500 in raw speed.. I shouldn't choose that card..

Any ideas? I do want a card that is just as fast at DX8 though. The 4600 is faster then people realize, IMHO.
You're right here.. a Ti4600 is a very strong card and still have some kick left. Although it doesn't support DX9 features.. Going for a cheap 9800 (Pro) is a good option. nice increase in overall speed/features.

But like the most ppl say. If you can afford a 6600GT you should do it. Those cards really pack a punch.
