Don't buy a GeForce4-MX for Doom 3

This is supposedly the cut-down/cheap version of GeForce4, but both Tom's Hardware and John Carmack claim that this is nothing but a bumped-up GeForce2-MX, and has almost nothing to do, feature-wise, with the real GeForce4. NVidia's agressive marketing may leave many customers unhappy, letting them think that they bought the latest and the greatest, while in reality they bought a renamed, 2-years old technology, unable to play modern games like Doom3 in a satisfiable manner."
