View Full Version : GeForce video cards

Just wondering if it would be worth an upgrade. I've started getting auto shut downs in WinXP because of Nav4.dll errors. It's frustrating so I think my card is going out. I've got a GeForce2 64mb MX400 that I've been using for about a year and half now and I was wondering since the GeForce4 64mb MX440's have gotten so much cheaper if I should upgrade? Would there be much of a performance difference? Also I've got an original Soyo Dragon motherboard (not the Plus version) has anyone gotten these to pieces to work together? The Mobo is about 2 years old and I'm alittle scared they won't be compatible. Let me know what you guys think please... thanks for your time.

Whatever you do, do NOT get a MX card, I would upgrade to about GF 4 Ti 4400 or 4600, the 4200 is good also, if you get one make sure it is a Ti card.

yea, but Ti's are a couple of hundred bucks!

Actually, the GeForce 4 Ti4200 w/ 64 MB of DDR memory is only $120-$130. If that's still too much, GeForce 3 Ti200's w/ 64 MB DDR memory are just $80-90. Search http://www.pricewatch.com and you should be able to find a graphics card to fit your budget. But avoid the GeForce 4 MX graphics line. They don't display reflections and deliver poor performance for the money in most cases.

How do you know when it's time to upgrade your computer? As soon as you get the latest copy of flightsim, it's time!
