    Can anyone tell me how much better the Radeon 9000 Pro is than the Gforce4MX? I know that it's just slightly a step up but by how much?

    From what i've heard and seen for benchmarks on the geforce4mx, its not a particularly great card. www.xlr8yourmac.com did a study where a 32mb ATI Radeon 7500 performed equal on almost every bench mark against a 64mb Geforce4mx. Go Radeon 9000. Its my next purchase (along with a new formac display, 12 inch powerbook............man, i need a better paying job :) )

    It's a bit faster (but definitely a noticable amount). It also supports newer OpenGL features, allowing it to look better with some modern games.
