A Radeon 8500 is comparable to a GF3 so a GF4 (non MX) is much faster.
The real question is how much money do you want to spend? Best Buys and CompUSA are offering a $50 rebate on the 8500 for a final price of $139 or so.
I bought it and for the bucks its a good deal. Works great so far.

GF4ti4400 and 4600 have DVD capabilities and both are miles ahead of the 8500 there is no comparison to be made here
now ATI 8500 and the GF3ti500 is a fair comparison....
ATI 8500 and Ti44/4600 comparison is totally laughable !!!
I'm not even gonna get into the high res capabilities of the GF4
look if your spending any kinda money on a graphics card then DO SOME RESEARCH dont listen to some idiot who has had one experience with his card and no proper knowledge of what the hell he's talkin about.... CHECK FOR YOURSELF....

You want quite a bit of bang for the bucks, a card that meets every demand and yet receive great quality..... Get the Radeon 8500 !
You have too much cash on your hand, and want something more original than flushing it down the drain, yet buy nothing new, just some more unneeded FPS ? Then get the GeForce4 !

As for the 'Aggressive post I posted b4 sorry if I jumped but I assumed since you 'didnt notice' the DVD capabilities, you didnt know what you were talking about....fair enough you made a mistake...I'll try to withhold on the snappy remaks in the future..
Plain and simple the GF4 will enable you to run just about any game that will be thrown at you at probably the highest res+refresh your monitor can handle with 2xAA or some serious Anisotropy settings...
If you got the cash get one...
I'm waiting for my Gainward any day now
