  1. #1
    I was wondering which is better (This is all I can afford, dont laugh)... Ok, a Radeon 9000 64mb or a Ge-Force4 MX440 128mb? Which would be best; the Radeon is $99 and the Ge-Force4 is $79.

    Thnx for all your help...

    Hmmmm.

    Newegg.com has a 128 mb Sapphire Radeon 9200 for $99.

    I think that might be the best value for that price. They also have a bunch of GeForce FX 5200's in that price range. It is better than the GF4 MX series.

    I think that none of the MX cards even support DirectX 8. So I would avoid them... though IL2 does play best in Open GL anyway.

    Postum diagnosis please. I couldn't tell you which card is better, but I think you need to do some more research here. Post your diagnosis and we can give you more accurate advice from there.

    Any GF4TI series card would be better than than both the FX5200 or R9200.

    warDude, there is more to playing this game than what goes on in your video card. First, I'm puzzled about your wanting well, very dated, even if good for their day video cards. Second, I wonder why you haven't posted your diagnosis. Are you looking to make your computer run better or do you wanna troll for an argument about slight differences in video cards? If you want help, please post your diagnosis. If not, please go to the general forum where such questions get bantered about!
