Use    \includegraphics[width=4in]{figure}
                                        ^^ ---  no extension!!

This way, if you have both  figure.eps  and  figure.pdf 
then the .pdf version will be used with pdfTeX mode,
and the  .eps  version will be used, should you be using LaTeX + GS mode.

Similarly, when you  \usepackage{graphicx}
do *not* specify an option [pdftex] or [dvips],
else you lose the flexibility of changing processing mode for this document.

There should be a  graphics.cfg  file already on your system;
this selects the right driver, appropriate to the processor being used.

Hope this helps,
