In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce4 Ti 4800 are marginally better than the AMD Radeon HD 4290.

The Radeon HD 4290 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce4 Ti 4800, and so the Radeon HD 4290 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce4 Ti 4800 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The GeForce4 Ti 4800 and the Radeon HD 4290 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce4 Ti 4800 has 5.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon HD 4290, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce4 Ti 4800 is marginally better than the Radeon HD 4290.

The GeForce4 Ti 4800 has 4 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon HD 4290 has 40. However, the actual shader performance of the GeForce4 Ti 4800 is 1 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 4290 is 18. The Radeon HD 4290 having 17 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Radeon HD 4290 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce4 Ti 4800.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce4 Ti 4800 is part of the GeForce4 GPUS released by NVIDIA in 2002. Only compatible with DirectX 8.1 or less and with a max memory of 128 MB, it can't play today's games.
Still, games before 2004 should be fully playable at max settings.
Radeon HD 4290 (IGP) is an integrated GPU on the AMD 890GX Chipset.
It's based on the RS880D Core and offers 40 Shader Processing Units, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs a 32-bit memory interface of either DDR2 (more commonly) or DDR3. The central unit runs, commonly, at up to 700MHz and the memory clock's operating speed depends on the system RAM's speed.
Radeon HD 4290's performance depends on the users system configuration which will define the operating memory clock's speed and on the desktop manufacturer which decides its central unit's speed.
Therefore, Radeon HD 4290, even if paired with DDR3 won't offer similar performance to the dedicated Radeon HD 4350. DirectX 11 games aren't supported.
