Same here about the 4!
When is the FX coming out? I need a new card to play KotOR, but that doesn't come out until summer/fall 2003 for PC...
It'll be useful for other games as well :D

I'm getting a Creative Labs 64MB G force 4 card, it's not the best on the market but I'm getting a new PC next year so there's no point in wasting money.

GeForce 4 sucks. Think 256MB Matrox Parhelia with 8x AGP working with a 64-bit Athlon processor. PERFORMANCE!!!

There are no 256 MB Parhelias yet. And by the time they make those are the 512s, the GeForce FXs will be stomping all over them. Don't get me wrong, Matrox is great, but speed isn't their thing. They are the ultra-stable-"CAD guys".

Maybe I'm just biased because the 1-gigacolor part and the general quality of display give me a boost for graphics work.

But seriously, Matrox Parhelia kicks GeForce4's to high heaven in UT2003 even in framerates.
