Default Video Cards worst to best?

Can someone with an extensive knowledge of video cards give me a good list of worst to best video cards starting with the nvidia ti4200. I am not asking if ATI or Nvidia is better, but rather a list for a buyer like myself to look at it and compare cards to cards. No bias information pls. In the market today I am asuming a nvidia 5900 = ati 9800.

For example

5950 ultra / 9800 XT
5900 / 9800
5700 / 9600
and so on...


Something on the lines of that but much more cards and versions of each card (XT, pro, ultra).

Thanks in advance

nvidia geforce ti4200-4600 / ATI Radeon 9500 Pro

nvidia geforce fx 5200 ultra / ATI Radeon 9500 Pro

nvidia geforce fx 5600/5700 ultra / ATI Radeon 9600 Pro/XT

nvidia geforce fx 5900 ultra / Ati Radeon 9700 Pro/XT

nvidia geforce fx 5900/5950 ultra / Ati Radeon 9800 Pro/XT

Those are pretty much the best matchups i can come up with.

Im not for sure about that geforce4 ti4200-4600, but that may be correct, and i am also not for sure about that fx 5200 ultra, but that should be true also.....

Anyways, hope this helps!

Well one question I was concered with was that on newegg I saw that the 5900XT was like $50 cheaper than the 5900. And I always thought that XT was like the top dog of the version. It has been with ATI anyways.

What would you reccomend for a $200 vid card?

I was looking at 5900XT/9800Pro/5900SE

All those seem to be around $200. And where does the SE stand in those? It seems to be the same price as the XT. And just the plain 5900 seems to be $50 more expensive than them all.

Hmm, well I've never heard of the XT moniker on a Nvidia brand so can't help you there, but I can tell that the 9800 Pro is the best of those you mentioned The SE is a budget model, it runs on half the pipelines and abit slower memory, you'll get much better performance if you go with the Pro And unless that 5900 is an Ultra than it's not much competition for the 9800 Pro either
