Well I've had no probs with Leadtek products (probably as I can get them cheaper than the others) and they overclock very well. :smokin:

All of them are good, maybe look at what extras you get with them :D

the Abit and MSI versions seem to be the cheapest - at least in my area - and I've yet to see a negative review on either of them

Do you mean GF3 Ti 500? :?:
I think the GF4 only comes in 4200, 4400, & 4600. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

My vote would also be for leadtek. PNY seems overpriced, at least at the retail shops in my area. Then again, who goes to retail shops for computer goodies? :laugh:

I just got a Powercolor GF4Ti4200 64MB, it was about $15cdn more than what I've seen the Abit one advertised for, but my dealer only carries Powercolor and ASUS and I'm sales tax exempt with him :D - I won't have a chance to really give it a work out until the weekend

I'll let yout know whether it gets a :thumb: or a :thumbs do

edit: I got a nice surprise when I opened the box - it's actually a 128MB w/4ns RAM - hopefully it'll be a good OC'er. Pretty good deal for $260cdn (~$165US)

It's a stock (almost) Dell Dimension 8200 with a P4 @ 1.994, 512 mb of PC800 Rambus, a 7200 rpm 40 gig hd, Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card, 16x dvd, 40/10/40 cdrw, Logitech z340 speakers, firewire card, retail PNY GeForce4 Ti 4200 (64 mb), Windows XP home, extra case fan (80 cfm intake - location bottom side), card fan (40 cfm exhaust), bay fan (40 cfm exhaust), blowhole (20 cfm exhaust)

Tweaked with Tweak XP, coolbits & GU Tweak

AGP aperture set to 256 mb

All non essential services shut down in XP

Highest priority set on 3DMark2001SE when running

Tried many combinations of tweaks to find the right ones to use for my system. XP tweaks increased scores as much as overclocking the card and the driver tweaks.

I got good results from the 29.42, 29.80 and 30.30 drivers. I have never tried the 29.60's.

I haven't heard of a really poor GeForce4 Ti 4200 yet.

Good luck. :beer:

Buy Gainward, i did and it is great. I wanted the Ti but i ticked the wrong box and got the Mx460 with Ti in and out and serious sam and the the connectors, it is really good and the Ti is just as good. Just make sure you go for the VIVO version with DVi and VIVO so you can record video and support another monitor or DVi flatcsreen.

I love my card and is it not that expensive.

Also get the golden sample version, then you can overclock forever!

I've always been happy with Abit products. Overclocking friendly and not very expensive.

Thanks! I placed the order today. $182.64 after FedEx 2 day shipping. Its already shipped! Only thing that worries me is the pic on the site is green. It should be red. Maybe the pic is of the MX card?

For some reason (that I don't know of) MSI has used both colours as I've seen both but they're the same card. :?:

So is there somethign wrong with the basic Nvidia geforce 4 Ti4200 card then? Everyone seems to buy their card from another manufacturer. Or do nvidia just supply the chips, and other companies actually make the cards? Just that my new system I'm getting in a week or too has a TI4200 specified, but just Nvidia as the manufacturer. I'm confused!

Usually check the names on those boxes as here if it just advertises a "nVidia .....(insert model)" the box it comes in has some "no name" brand on it. Ask to see. ;)

Gainward! :bounce2:

I'm right now as we speak buying the Golden Sample 128MB Ti4200 and I'm reading on hardocp.com that this card is overclockable to Ti4600 speeds!
