At first I didn't really care that I would go to ATI, and I was willing to say that my laptop's video card is not the standard but the exception, but this peice of **** has proved me right all along.

You need to get a FX5500 or higher to beat the Ti4200 (which was (and still is) a GREAT card.
You're basing your trolling on two cards that you owned...one of which is an almost top-of-the-line from one generation of cards, the other a nearly-bottom-of-the-line card from the same generation. Oh, i wonder which is going to be better!!
Depends which company decides to cheat in their drivers :)
Compare the 4200 to a 9500 or above, and you'll see differences, because the 9500 and above are the next generation of cards, and ATI completely trounced nVidia in performance in that generation. The current generation (ATI X800/nVidia 6800 etc) the results are so close it could depend on the direction of the wind in Timbucktoo as to which comes out on top.
Yes, ATI drivers still suck, their video quality is **** poor, and I'm not comparing FPS speeds because it would be an unfair comparison.
So, you're ruling out from buying something from an entire company because of one product which IS slower than your old card.
My uncle has the MX series (on an Athlon 1.6 system), and it can play games perfectly well at 1024x768, a feat that my ATI can't even dream of doing (on a 2.5ghz P4).
The Ti4200 isn't a low-end card, the MX series is low-end (in the GF2/4 stages) for nVidia, and you really should avoid ANYTHING that says "SE" or "MX" in the name.
My cards can only play NFSU at 640x480!!! And I'm on a 2.5ghz P4 with 1gig of PC2700 ram and a WD1200JB hd! And yes, I'm calling ATI a peice of ****. The omegadrivers don't help with this peice of ****.
