Here are some:

I am almost positive that it doesnt support DX9, but I could be wrong.

Got this from a site: http://www.madshrimps.be/printart.php?articID=126

We will put it head to head with the video card which took the first spot in the DX8 performance graphs when it was released, the nVidia Geforce 4 Ti4600. It does not have support for the advanced features of DirectX 9.


just because you have dx9.0c doesnt mean your video card does....

exactly.
the Geforce 4's are only for DirectX 8.1. Nvidia rushed the FX series and put in DX 9 support, however the cards were not great

Good decision. You probably won't gain much more performance with the ti 4600.

It all depends on the games you play though. If you're the heavy duty shooter type, then a 6800 GT would be worth saving up for. If that is too expensive, a 6600 GT would fit just fine, but you probably won't get full blast settings with a framerate above 20.

I must admit though, it used to be an amazing card when MXs became very cheap and standard.

GeForce 4 TI DOES NOT support DirectX 9. People think just because DX9 is on their system, they are making full use of it, even on Integrated Graphics. This is NOT true whatsoever. The only video cards out now to fully support DirectX 9 is the GeForce 6 series.

Games are just getting into an era where DirectX 9 is needed, in fact, DX8.1 games are still being released all the time. For example, BF2 only uses DX8.1 for its visual effects, although it does use DX9 on Nvidia cards to improve performance. Get a 6600GT or 6800GT, best bang for the buck.
