what is the nvidia mx4000?

  3.06 Ghz 11:05 02 May 2005

i'm looking for a very cheap new graphics card to replace the old geforce2 mx400. The pc is still good enough to play most games, except for the graphics card. I found that radeon 9200se (which seem to be awful) or nvidia geforce 4 mx4000 s are the best. I can't find any info (through google) on the mx4000 though, any help would be appreciated. Thanks

3.06 Ghz,

the MX400, was a budget card from Nvidia, and would not be up to much, running most of todays games.

I believe it was replaced by the FX5200.

What is your budget for a new card.?

£30 is probably the uppermost. I was considering getting a 64mb radeon 8500le off ebay for £15. I it seems to be fairly good. I just a cheap graphics card for the old pc (1ghz P3, 512mb RAM) because I like to play games across our network. The new pc is well served with 3.06ghz and a radeon x800pro. I just want something which will allow the old pc to a) play fairly modern games smoothly b) without being on the very lowest settings c)cheap!

3.06 Ghz,

I doubt very much whether any card in this price range, would play any modern games, except at the very lowest settings.

i friend is willing to sell me an nvidia fx5200 ultra for £10. Would that do the job any better?

3.06 Ghz,

It would probably be a bit better, than the cards available at this range.
