can I just add to the sticky at the top - it is the Radeon 7000's that don't have TnL support?

Radeon 9200 has got the Charisma II TnL engine so somewhere in between 7200 and 9200 models must be the Charisma I engine.

Also the 9600 claims to have DX9 support well I can accept 9.1 support but DirectX 9b is too new for that? Don't take anything at face value is my advice. Sorry this is voodoo board but since it's come up I thought I would share what I found out looking at the Radeon market in general.

Thanks, David.

Hi 4500x2,

welcome between us: please remember therefore that you must do post in right forums in next times.

But let's go just your question.

Radeon 7200 grafics processors series --> MS DirectX 8.0 hardware support

Radeon 9200 grafics processors series --> MS DirectX 8.1 hardware support

Radeon 9600 grafics processors series --> MS DirectX 9.0 hardware support

That's all.

hmmmz, well, are you sure directx 9b is directx 9.1? anyway, what glide said is correct.
stay away form radeon cards which have lite or SE behind their name. favor the cards with XT or Pro behind the name.
also look very good at tomshardware.com vga charts, and notice how a radeon 9000 is faster then a radeon 9200, and a radeon 8500 is overall a better card then the 9000/9100/9200 series...
good cards for their value are IMHO the 9200, 9600pro

Yes I was looking at the 9200 as I thought that was the best value for money but they go out of stock fast. I am wondering if it's not worth waiting till the end of the month for prices to come down with the release of Directx 9b I really think I want a DX9 compliant GFX card so if I can save a few quid by waiting to get a 9600 then I'm laughing. Play the game the right way :)
