With $300 What Video Card Would You Buy Right Now?

Tue Apr 09, 2002 4:19 pm

I was mostly sold on waiting for the geforce 4 ti 4200. But dang it, I can't wait! Should I spend it all in one place for the ti4600 or should I save half and get one of ATI's boards? :roll:

Find a shop with a 30-day, no questions asked return policy ;)

You know there actually is a shop in town that has that policy. With that policy in effect what card would you buy then? Do you believe the 4200 will be out in the next 30 days?

Try an All In Wonder Radeon 8500.

I bought the radeon 8500le and had no luck getting it to work. Even $180 is too much to spend for a VGA card :lol: . So I took it back and got a ti 4400 that works sweet. Thanks for the advice.
