I like any GF4ti4200/4800, yet go with the 5600xt if you like.
both are good choices.

stay away from any SE or MX cards as they are uter crap.

I am just REALLY worried about getting a 64bit 5600XT not a 128bit or 256bit memory.
Its a FORSA GF FX5600XT 128MB DDR AGP 8x TV+DVI (RB) OR GF FX5600 128MB DDR AGP 8x TV+DVI (RB)

Which is faster thou the Ti4200 or Ti4800 or 5600 or 5600XT

How can I check ?
I HIGHLY dought it will be on the box


is this true or Bias.
http://www.techwarelabs.com/reviews/video/forsa_fx5600/index_4.shtml
and this is the 5600FX with 256bit according to the review. Hence the 4800 would be a better choice (4800 is 4600 with AGP 8X right ?) AGP 8X giving it 0.00000000000000001% boost...lol

The Ti series will kick anus in any of the older games and at a good price. If your looking at dx 9, with those choices your kinda limited and I would probably still pick a Ti and let it revert to dx8.
