    Cheap Geforce4 Ti.

    Does anyone know where I could get my grubby little mits on a Geforce4 ti?
    It is for use in a system I am knocking together for my sister, so brand spanking new bits are not needed!

    I've had a look round all the usual suspects on the web and am dubious of paying over the odds for a second hand one on fleabay.

    Brand new or used, it doesn't bother me, I just dont want to pay more than £40 (unless I really have to!).

    I can't remember much about that range, but would I be right in thinking the 4600 was the best? And the 4800 was just an 8xAGP 4200 or something?

    Also, does anyone have a link to a site I saw ages ago that compared around 50 graphics cards performace???
    Maybe I'd be better with an 8500 or 9700?? Just want to compare performace.


    Cheers for any help!

    The big graphics comparison is at Tom's Hardware Guide (www.tomshardware.com). 8500 < GF4ti < 9700, basically. You can get Radeon 9XXX series cards from www.retekdirect.co.uk, although at the moment they only have 9700s and 9700 Pros.

    IIRC the 4800SE was the 8x 4200, the 4800 was an 8X 4400. The clock speeds became a bit more variable with the 8x cards though I think.

    Nice one, a 9700 for £50. Is is easy to mod to Pro???
    Although refurbished, I don't think I'm going to get it for less than that.

    Could I??

    Caution: My Retek 9700 (Although arrived flashed to Pro...) crapped out after less than 3 months - there was no thermal goop under the HSF.

    1 month warranty - that was £60 up in (mainly proverbial) smoke.

    Price wise, probably not mate. The only difference between the 9700 and the 9700 Pro is the clock speeds, you just OC the card to get it to perform like a Pro. If you buy a Pro though, you can OC that, and it will probably still end up faster. I bought a 9500 a few months ago, that did softmod and OC past 9700 Pro speeds so I'm happy.

    4800SE was a Ti4400 with 8x AGP
    4800 was a Ti4600 with 8x AGP
    Ah, yeah I wasn't sure. Was there an 8x AGP equivalent of the 4200?

    Although some companies (Albatron, Point of View) called it a 4280...

    Why not go for the 9700 Pro at www.retekdirect.co.uk instead of the 9700 non pro as it is only £65.00
