For around 130$ you can get a TI4200 and it will Blow Away the 2 cards you listed.

Either way, stay away from the MX GF4 models because their only DirectX7 Compatible.

DONOT get a GF4MX card, they are nothing but higher clocked GF2's. Yes I am serious.

GF4 TI4200 is only $125us at http://www.newegg.com and will perform FAR better than both those card

NVIDIA cards scale well with any CPU you have. If you're running a GeForce2 or lesser card, you will notice a speed increase with your Duron. And it will be much more significant with a Ti4200 than with a GF3 Ti (won't even go into the 4MX). You can later upgrade the rest of your components around your Ti4200 and it will scale much better with newer CPU's than will any of the other cards you mentioned.

I don't think a GF4MX is a good deal in ANY computer. Like I said, it's simply a fast GF2. For the 30 extra bucks, it's worth getting the TI4200
