Thread: Surprising Results!

  1. #1
    I upgraded my gerforce 4 mx 420 64 mb to a nvidia geforce fx 5200 256mb and here are my results:


    3d Mark 2001 : old card MX420 - Score:1,182 , new card FX5200 - Score:2,218

    System Works 2004 Performance Test: old card MX420 - Score:131.1/306.0 , new card FX5200 - Score:165.5/327.1


    As you can see there was a pretty big performance increase. This is for those who didnt think the FX5200 would give you a big noticable performance inhansment over the MX420.

    That is a pretty big performance increase in 3d mark isn't it?

    I fairly knew I&#39;d get a big performance increase if I get a better card; I have the MX440 though, but same difference when it comes to upgrading.

    But since my gf4 still plays everything I need it to I&#39;ve seen no reason to upgrade, YET, I&#39;m waiting around until Unreal Tournament 2004, and Half-Life 2 comes out, that way, I can get a really good card that will run these perfectly, but until they come out, the old gf4 is still good enough.
