Before I began to write, I just want to see that I do not intend to play heavy duty graphic powered games. I mainly plan on using gimp 2 (:D) and 3ds Max 5. So i'm considering the geforce4 Ti. What do you think?

I can't think of a reason to buy the GF 4 TI as it is very outdated. For your rendering demands, you want to look at your CPU and system RAM in the first place.

oh that is too outdated,lol i was asuming fx series like fx5200

the geforce4 ti beats the geforcefx 5200, tests show it

I can't either. ROFL :vlol:

I think I still have one in my outdated junk drawer.

They both are very very basic, weak for 3D, media and gaming, but fine enough for 2D.
For rendering, you must discriminate for the finest processor, motherboard and RAM. Take the best of them! The graphic card is not important for rendering.

I agree with Joeeph here. :)

You really need a fast Dual Core CPU because it will save so much time.

also, when I mentioned the geforce4 ti, I was refering to the 4600 model. Not the 4200 model. Honestly, I don't want to spend a whole lot of money on a graphic card (just anything that can out perform a geforce 6150). I might go with a radeon 9700 pro or 9800 or something from the geforce fx line.

Again, I don't plan on playing heavy duty power house games or creating high poly 3d objects. I play very few modern games on my PC. The only recent game I have is dreamfall only because I adored the original. I mostly play older games. As for modeling, I only model low poly objects in 3ds max (mainly for TRLE) and make animations for them.

Well then, any older card will do fine. like a GF TI 4600 , Radeon 9700Pro... But again: if you want good performance in modeling , rendering, you should focus on a fast CPU, fast and enough RAM ( 2GB), on a fine motherboard.

A bit off @ Joseph..

Didnt justin run legend on a Ti?

Possibly, i don't know... So? Did he say he had great performance? :confused:

thats what i was trying to say about the rendering but go for nvidia becuase they support more third party companies!

Dont try to get 1 gig ram, In 3ds max, it takes soo long to pre-render shadows,motion blur ect. i have experience with our BlueWorld logo.

I'm probably going to go with 2 gigs

A 9700 Pro or a 9800 Pro would be much better. :)

Yeah, when it first came out ( the demo i think ), and he said it was fine :)
