tthe order is

gf4 ti series
gf3 ti series
gf4 mx series
gf 2 series

i know there are more to that but i dont know much about then cos i only started builing with a gf3 ti200 many years ago.

@ranfx if u dont want to spend much on a graphics card your not goin to get great performance in any of them games but to play them look at gettin a ati 9550 or 9600. they are about £50 (GBP) so about $90(USD) they would play them game on low settings ok i would of though

An MX-440 will run games like HL2 ok today. However to get decent FPS, the game looks like complete utter garbage.

You DEFIANTLY need a new card for Doom3 though.

I got Geforce4 MX 4000 its true that it dont have any pixel shader to run newer games but in other games (prince of persia warrior within, half life 2 underground2) you will play fine.
compared to a geforce2 with the same memory i think that 4 would be much better.
also notice that geforce2 may run faster with older drivers

It does, i tried a new driver on one a little while ago, and it cut my performance by a third. But the bottom line of this post is that the GeForce 2 MX 400 wont run Doom 3 or Half Life 2 or Far Cry, or anything newer than than Halo.

I have a Geforce MX4000 and it won't play any new games well.

The Geforce 4mx 440 is similar in price to a geforce 3 ti200, but will not give you as good of performance. I used to own a geforce 4mx 420 a couple of years ago, but got my new card last summer and there is a HUGE performance difference between the two. As for the newer geforce 4 mx 4000, my brother just got the 128 mb version (PCI), and it's great for the older games he plays (Dungeon Seige, Anachronox, etc. all about 2 years old), but you'd be better off springing for a low end Radeon 9200 or Geforce 5200, both about $100

I had a GeForce 4 MX on my old HP computer. It was a sorry excuse for a graphics card. I never ran any benchies on it, but lets just say I only got about 25-30 fps in UT2004 on Medium settings, no AA or AF.

The GeForce 4 MX440 is slower than a GeForce 3 Ti 500 but still faster than a GeForce 2.

Would it play better than your x800pro on doom3

I had an MX440 in my computer for the past 2 weeks. Got my 6600GT back from XFX. This one is broken too (different broken though) and it has to go back again.
