Default geforce ti and fx

It seems the ti series is a lot better than the fx even though its old. With the bandwidth the fx5200 is 6.4gb/s while the ti 4600 is 10. And on other forums people are saying a ti4200 is better than an fx5600. However no store Ive been to will order the ti because its an older model. Can anyone explain the ti and fx to me.

Also, worth upgrading mx420 to 440 for $50. or $100 for fx5200

Yes, the GeForce 4 TI4200 slaughters the FX5200, but the FX5200 is a mainstream card for the FX series. The difference is the ages between the two. The TI is a DX 8.1 card and the GF FX is DX9. The GF4 Titanium Series were really really good cards for their time (early 2002); back then they were as good as we think about the X800 series today. You don't see them in stores any more because they are obsoleted cards. Right after they got slaugtered by the R300 (9700 & 9500) in many benchmark, nVidia stop making the chips for GF4 TI and went on with their new plan (the FX series) to defeat the 9700 Pro and tried to reclaim it's crown, however. They were unsucessful with the FX series and since then, ATI has been owning their asses with the R3xx series.
