    Hi,

    having a Ti4600, it lets me play all my games at 1280x1024x768 without AA or AF. I was expecting GFFX to let me do this. However the reviews are pretty disappointing and it's noise is extremely annoying (tom's mp3).
    My other solution would be the 9700Pro which I tested and I had many driver issues with games (mouse lags, z-buffer errors etc). I admit it I didn't test it with a clean install but in any case I was expecting a lot more. Personally I couldn't understand how can ATI be considered better with so many problems.

    So right now, I dont see any card fitting my needs. Any ideas or comments?

    9700Pro - Fresh Install.. uptodate drivers, decent CPU/Mobo.

    what games - mouse lag is fixable?

    z-buffer errors - again what games? Morrowind isnt z-buffer aparently but TCL errors and fixed in next driver.

    based on gfFX being dearer and not much better perfromance wise, if at all with 4xAA/8xAf and obviously still having driver issues then working through a 9700 or 9700Pro's issues seems to be the best bet.

    I only have a few issues with the 9700Pro (shadows in Mafia and Op Flash which are also fixed in next drivers as its the same TCL issue) so I recommend it as a card.
