Geforce4 MX is an UPgrade ? :shock: Geforce 3’s are more powerful
Lots of things are made here that we’re not worthy of buying
I couldn’t find a Geforce4 for ages after they came out abroad. I have seen other ATI stuff for sale in Taiwan so there is a chance[/quote]
Well…if you were previously using a TNT2, it’s an upgrade. Sure, the GF3 is more powerful, but you’ll also pay about $1000NT more for it.
High-end items don’t get released in Taiwan for a while because there isn’t a large-enough gamer population (with disposable income) to support the demand. This happens with CPUs, vid cards and sound cards because they’re priced essentially the same as in the US. This creates the situation where I can buy a GF3 Ti500 after 7 hours of work but a Taiwanese kid will toil 35 hours at the gas station.
If you really want high-end items and have a budget to match, Sunfar (Taipei Main Station and Ba Deh) and TKEC(the yellow 3C stores) are the places to go.
