Default ti4200 vs 5200

Hi all

quick question:

which card would be better in my partner's p4 2.8ghz out of a ti4200
or a 5200? I know the 5200's got a bad rep but it is newer and
supports dx9...

any thoughts gratefully received

thanks

Richard

Of the two, a Geforce Ti4200 is superior, unless he or she has one of the
extremely rare FX5200 Ultra cards, in which case it's actually a bit better.
An standard 128bit FX5200 is a slower card with DX9 support tossed in as a
buying incentive for the less informed about gaming cards at the time. ABout
20% slower overall that a standart Ti4200 depending on the bench and
test.The 64bit FX5200 is basically just a 2D card.

My question is, why would you want to use either? When you can get modern
cards that would blow both away? I have a cupboard full of everything from
4200TI's, 9600's up to 5600's. I had an x800GTO but put it in a system I
build for someone about 1 1/2 years ago. I cant bring myself to throw them
away, but, alls they do is collect dust lol.
just doing a quick search on newegg, I found this card

This one is $40 cheaper right now, without mailing in and waiting 3 months
for a maybe rebate, and is faster to boot. In fact, it's the fastest AGP
card out there.

Why not a 7600GS. Works very well.
I changed from a Ti4200 to 7600GS.
What a change!
