    Hi,

    Im thinking of buying the Radeon 9000 as its quite cheap, but im not sure if its much faster than the card I have at the moment - the 4mx that came with my dual 867. I use Electric Image Animation System and want a bit of a boost for open gl screen display.

    thanks in advance

    nige.

    Although most people would probably recommend the Radeon over the GeforceMX, the performance between them is so close it wouldn't even be worth replacing the card you have now, unless you went with something significantly faster, like a Geforce4 Ti, or a Radeon 9800 Pro

    The new 9000pro has 128mb of vram so it could be a nice improvement over a 32mb card...
