Default Re: Faster then a 4600TI..

and you will be glad you spent the extra $50 for a 6600GT when the these games come out.
6600gt can be had for same price of a 9800pro.

Dude the 4600 card should have DX9 support. My old peace of crap 4200 has DX9 support. hmm.
You can play DX9 games on a GF4 Ti, but you will not see any DX9 effects like Pixel and Vertex Shader 2.0. The 4200-4600s support only DX8.0 with Pixel Shader 1.1 and 1.3, but only 1.1 for the most part since there's pretty much no games with 1.3 and it's nothing special anyway.

Anyway, if you want a new card, the least you should go for is a 6600gt. I'd go for a cheap 6800nu if it were up to me.
