Default Re: Faster then a 4600TI..

A 9800 pro would be a good choice,but a 6600GT would be better.

This turns out not to be the case. The NV25 and NV28, aka GeForce4 Ti4x00, have no DX9 support. DX9 support started in the NVIDIA line up with the NV30.
I used to drive a Heisenberg, but whenever I'd glance at the speedometer, I'd get lost.

Best bang for your buck on a card which will be faster than a Ti4600 is the Geforce 6600 GT, get either the XFX of the BFG versions. Also the Geforce 6600 GT blows away the ATI Radeon 9800 PRO and Matches and even Beats the 9800XT all for a much better price. Monarch Computers, and Newegg.com are great places to shop for them. For now though Newegg.com has the XFX 6600 GT for $199 Retail Box. Hope this helps.

Any ideas? I do want a card that is just as fast at DX8 though. The 4600 is faster then people realize, IMHO.

Also, used 5700U's can be found for around $100 nowadays, and at that price they're indeed a (500/1000) steal...

For that price you could probably get a 9700 pro which is twice the card
