You can certainly beat it in terms of supported functions. Since it only supports direct X 8.1 functions or lower, the rendering quality will suffer on newer games. I bought a refurbished 9500pro for $130 about a month back, and 9600xt's can be bought refurbished for the same price (or less).

In terms of raw speed in DX 8 games, the 4600 is generally a little faster. However, in newer games that impliment shaders to a higher degree, this is not the case (and will become less and less of the case).

Also, Newegg is selling refurbished 9700pro's for as low as $150 now, which are significantly faster cards. I don't know if your comfortable buying refurbed products though. If not, thats totally understandable. If you are however, $20 more will be totally worth it.

Read this article though: Linky

It pretty much shows even the 9600xt to be a supperior product, and you get full DX 9 support. Order of preference for gaming (IMO obviously): 9700pro, 9500pro, 9600xt, TI 4600.

Of course, if your buying that card just to mess around with it, it will serve your purposes. Lemme know what you think.

you should not pay over $100 for those. You may want to consider the ti4200 for like $60 on ebay. Anyone that pays more than $70(unless its an exceptional overclocker) or more than $100 for a ti4600 is overpaying. I sold my ti4200 for $67 and its almost as fast as a ti4600!

have you overclocked it? I hear many do ti4600 speeds. he probably modded the ti4600 to he** to get those clocks. I should get about 350/750 modding my ti4200 :D
