Default Re: 5200 or 5700LE PCI?

with any TRUE GF4mx's being hard to find, that's certainly the case.... The original Geforce 4 MX440 and 460 were actually quite capable, with decent core and memory speeds, and performance of a GF3... sadly, the true models have pretty much vanished, leaving all the cut-down (64 bit) versions with low clock and memory speeds, giving everybody a bad taste in their mouth about GF4MX...

Even last year, I didn't mind that level of performance in my HTPC, as I ran games @ 6x4 and 8x6... and heck, I didn't even have a GF4MX, I had a GF2ti, which performed about the same but was smacked harder when it came to AA...

But getting back to the subject, even the 5700LE with 128 bit memory interface would definitely outperform even a true 128 bit memory interface GF4 MX440 PCI... FX5700 is probably the pinnacle of PCI performance... I don't see a 6200 PCI coming any time soon...
