Wish they would sell a tweakers budget/oem card. A ti4x00 card in a brown box with only the cheapest or no gpu cooling. No software maybe just a driver. Than it would be up to the buyer to cool it and get the drivers etc.
From what ive read of the elaborate cooling systems is that they add cost and could be much better. What about those gaudy sinks that connect the gpu and ram under one big heat umbrella?
Let the prices fall, in the meantime my ti200 is still running nicely.
GF4 Ti4400 is a good bang for the dollar also. Its the one I would get due to the reasons specified by chosenfool.

The actuall price could end up being $150 or less for the 64mg.
That price would make it the new ti200.
Than they'd have to drop the price on all the ti5/200 and all the mx's.
It would be cool for us though. Ti500 for under $100 would be great. $50 to upgrade a friends computer to a new gf4 mx card or a little more for a ti200.
Now if ram can stay down maybe i can build a lan rig.

the ram is a lower quality and wont oc high enough to compete with its big brother.
the 4200 at less than half the price and say 7/8th the performance when oc'd is a very good deal IMO.

was talking about the 4200. it uses higher/worse timed ram.
BTW new egg has the ti4200 64 oem version for $159.

i dunno, if you have to go budget, the 4200 will be a good choice. But the tweaker card is for sure 4400.

i was compairing ram from the 4200 to the 4600's. they use better ram as you go up the line, makes sense. the timing is crucial(pun? what pun?) to performance/ocing.
i'd definitely go with the 128 version or the 4400 depending on price. 4600 is for extreme gaming, benchmarking or for braggin rights.
for myself, i'm still happy with my ti200, if i wasn't i'd just save and get a ti4600 and tweak that.

Check the marks on this ti4200 card. sounds like they got a good sample. when oc'd it runs as well as a ti4600. That is the reason why it could be the new ti200. Half the price oc'd to all the performance of the ti4600.
As with all hardware your mileage may vary.
