Default Oh my dear, have I got a whopper for you

hmm well it would be nice if i could REACH at least 1k in benchmark *cough*

Hi everyone, I am new here. My family plays a lot of games online and we notices how terrible framerate can be in some of these games. So anyhoo... we downloaded 3DMark03.

I am somewhat new to all this computer lingo stuff, but have a small foundation of it. The marks came out to be 922 3D marks. *cry*

http://service.futuremark.com/servle...projectType=10

here it is copied with my specs in case link doesn't work. Any HELP would be greatly appreciated. I know i need to upgrade my processor. However I thought by going from Geforce 4ti 4200 to Geforce fx 5200 256 DDR 128bit would have made a great difference, the games seem much much worse now! And anyway my old geforce 4 is dead so I can't go back to it >< any suggestions of what to do for my system? What is most important to invest in or upgrade or fix or change?? And what would you suggest all you wonderful godly computer savy people !

Thank you...

Thumbs down

heh im sorry for you but going from Geforce 4ti 4200 to Geforce fx 5200 256 DDR 128bit is a big downgrade !!

You could notice minimal speed increase starting from GFFX 5600 Ultra cards compared to GF 4

Consider these cards as upgrade
Nvidia 5600 Ultra , 5700+ , 5900+....
or Radeon 9600Pro, 9700+, 9800+....

hmmm... which would be better:

Geforce FX 5600 Ultra with 128MB DDR
GeForce FX 5600XT with 256MB DDR

I think the basic difference here is one has more DDR memory, but not sure difference between Ultra and regular is.

This computer is mostly used for gaming online which can be graphic intense: Everquest, Dark Age Of camelot, Diablo etc etc etc which would be a better card AND would this be better than the Geforce 4 TI 4200 and the card I currently have?

XT= good for ATI
XT= bad for nvidia, lower clocks ETC
right now memory is not an issue at 128 megs
5600 ultra would be a better choice, but the best may be a 9600XT (ATI), or a 9700pro, which i have. it's quite nice

ATI Nvidia

Radeon 9600Pro/XT > Geforce FX 5600 Ultra with 128MB DDR > GeForce FX 5600XT with 256MB DDR

Ati best from all of the above , offcourse you can save some more and get better card though....

If you can try both ATI and Nvidia. Just make sure you can get a refund. Your allways gona get someone that will say ATI is better or Nvidia is better. Just because it runs great on there system does not mean it will run good on yours. If I were you I would save my money because a 5200 would be just flushing your money. We have some new cards coming out like the XGI and that should bring ATI and Nvidia down a little I would think.

From what I can see the Ti4200 outperformed the FX 5900 in all 3 tests?
Guess I'll stick with my 4200 and pack away the 5900 until DX9 becomes mainstream.
