I have a Radeon 9200 in my Windows 98 computer (Intel P4, 1GB RAM). Would a Geforce 4 Ti4200 be an improvement? I use it mainly to run FPS games up until 2002-2003.

In my DOS/WIN98 rig, I have a Diamond VOODOO1 in PCI slot and a Radeon9800SE 128M(using OMEGA softmod driver!)in AGP 2x slot
the motherboard is 440BX(MSI-6199 VER2) with 256MB*2 NEC PC-133 SDRAM and Pentium III 1000(run at 7.5*100,because Radeon dont like 89hz agp under 7.5*133...)
This rig runs very well,from early 3dfx dos game to DIABLO2,QUAKE3 etc, score near 5900 in 3dmark2000, support DX9, great 2D quality, and I can DVI output to IBM T117 LCD and VGA output to SONY Trinitron CRT 17 :blush:

I also have a VOODOO4 PCI,the problem is when both VOODOO1 PCI and VOODOO4 PCI inserted on the 440BX(no agp card), in DOS 7.10, early 3dfx games(like Tomb raider and Battle Arena Toshinden) and demos cannot detect VOODOO1 card :depressed:

Yes, but for major bump you should look into following generation.
