If memory serves me right, the GeForce4 MX are slightly newer than the 
Ti's, hence the added video acceleration, but only support a lower 
DirectX feature set, i.e. DirectX 7 whereas the GF4 Ti cards support a 
DirectX 8 feature set and are probably a little faster.  However, I 
would just buy a NVidia FX5200.  You could probably get one for close to 
the same price as a GeForce4 MX and you would have the benefit of a much 
faster card for gaming, a DirectX 9 feature set and the latest hardware 
video acceleration.
