Gainward or PNY ???

Recommended Posts

I am planning to upgrade my old Voodoo 3 graphic card. The Gainward GF3 TI-200 128MB Jumbo is one alternative. Will the additional 64MB improve the speed ? or should I buy the PNY GF4 MX-420 64 MB instead? The PNY is half the price of the Gainward.

The GF4 MX isn't DX8 compliant, so you can't get all those cool pixel and shader effects. The Ti200 does have all that, and is a tiny bit faster than the GF4 MX. I'd say the Gf3 would be better, because it's more future proofed and a tiny bit faster. Also the other 64mb of ram will do a tiny bit better now, but in the future you should see some improvement over the 64mb counterpart.
