Compared to the MX4000 it replaced it destroyed lol, I didn't use fraps then.

I think my fav would have to be my Diamond Voodoo Banshee. I think it was my first, too.

I had 7600 GS 512 MB, GeForce FX 5500, GeForce4 MX 4000.

GeForce4 MX 4000 was able to play Half Life 2 in DirectX7 with decent fps. I didn't finish the game with it. Then I got the FX 5500 and I was disappointed with its performance. it is not that much better than the GeForce 4 but the only good feature about it is that it supports pixel shader 2.0 unlike the GeForce4 MX.

The FX 5500 allowed my to play Resident Evil 4 without the patch 1.1 at 15-30 fps & 800x600 resolution. However the patch 1.1 raped it. And then I decided to get the 7600 GS 512 MB.

And this is was a good and bad move at the same time. First :-

The good things :
1-7600 GS allowed me to play Resident Evil 4 even with patch 1.1 with decent fps at 1024x768 with 4xAA.
2-I finally was able to max out Half Life 2 with some hiccups & lags here and there but overall it was a good experience.
I then got the Episode Two and with maxed out settings it showed my 7600 GS the ultimate pwnage. especially when I turn on the flashlight in the outdoor areas, the game will become really laggy.

The bad things :
1-The card was a PNY and it was horrible. They gave the card more VRAM but they nerfed the memory clock speeds. Instead of 800 MHz effective they downclocked the memory to 533 MHz. Which hurted the performance really bad (I didn't know this until it was too late) . From what I correctly remember XFX, BFG (now defunct) & PNY all cheated their customers with this underclocked piece of ****, The EVGA come with 700 MHz memory too but It is not as bad as the 533 MHz version.
2- I paid for this card as much as for the 7600 GT AGP which is about twice as fast as this card.
3- If any body tried this will know what I mean, When you own a very underclocked card that is priced higher than a much faster card & you feel cheated....
After this I really hated PNY & decided that I will not but any PNY junk again.

So, long story short biggrin.gif I didn't like any AGP card from what I had. But the GTX 470 is my ultimate love, even if it become old I will still remember how great it is. This card played all my games on max (expect Crysis) compared to the *****y old cards.

My Geforce 4 MX440! I played Independence War 2 maxed out with that card, except for Direct X 8 features that looked so amazing on the box tongue.gif

The game still looks good biggrin.gif

That's not surprising. The GeForce FX 5200 was slower than a GeForce 4 MX 440 on some counts, and the GeForce FX 5500 was essentially an overclocked GeForce FX 5200. This is why some people referred to the GeForce FX 5200 as a GeForce 4 MX with DirectX 9.

I'm surprised at how relatively common this is. I knew it happened but I thought it was relatively unheard of.

I had a GeForce 4 MX 440 w/AGP8x that had underclocked VRAM. I think the stock GeForce 4 MX 440's VRAM spec was 400MHz for the regular version and 512MHz for the AGP8x version, but mine was 150MHz (300MHz DDR). Like yours, that put mine almost half as slow.

I never was sure of the manufacturer. It was low profile and Purple, which springs PNY to mind, but I think I concluded it was AOpen, reason being that I googled the number on the VRAM and found AOpen had used it on a Purple GeForce FX 5200 (underclocked there too, go figure...). Many remember Aopen for their Black PCBs but they did Purple around the GeForce FX time too, so I'm more leaning towards that it was AOpen.

My PNY GeForce 4 Ti 4200 wAGP8x and PNY GeForce 6800 GS AGP were both normal, so my experience with them was rather positive.

Geforce MX 400 series if i remember it right, what a beast !

If you were asking him while you had the GeForce 4 MX, it's a good thing he didn't get it. It was not worth it. If you got the GeForce 4 MX instead, it wasn't much of a real loss for the most part.

the FX 5200 was faster overall (it had 4 pipelines vs 2 from the MX I think), and it supported pixel shader, it was a decent card for DX8.1 (it supported DX9 SM 2.0, but the FX series was to slow compared to the Radeons 9500/9700 in DX9) while the MX was a DX7 card and some games back in 2003 already wouldn't run properly on the MX...
to bad they started selling some really slow FX 5200 with 64bit memory and low clocks later... I remember there was even a FX 5200 Ultra model initially,
the standard FX 5200 was OK, close to the Radeon 8500 performance in DX8


as for my favorite, probably my Radeon 9500 (with all the pipelines enabled),
but also my geforce 2 MX 400 a few years earlier...
