Okay, let's assume all I want to do is upgrade to around a gig or so of ram..better cooling, and video.

With that in mind what would be a good nvidia based card for my system? Something my system can use to the fullest potential, and not waste 400 dollars on something that is too goddamn fast for my board to utilize..And, reasonably priced.. (200 or so dollars..) albeit quality product.

not sure how much they cost now, but you could run a gForce4 Ti4600 well...the Ti4200 are at good prices now and I've got ut2003 maxed out with it

What about those Ti4200s supposedly beating 4600s?

These damn cards change so rapidly I can't keep up :(

i havn't heard that, but you could probably oc a 4200 to get it there

wow, that looks like one hell of a card there, real beast of a cooler on that thing (hopefully)...I'm sure you'll oc that thing in no time...good luck

Yes the Abit OTES GF4 Ti4200 is a real hotrod and is frequently found to be just as fast as the Ti4600's when asked. :devil win

Not to mention being under 200 and quite attractive for a card, and that I/E system..god. It's all mine.

u could pick up a ti4600 for under $200 at pricewatch.com
the 4200 even cheaper but the xtra $40 for a 4600 is worth the framerates. my 4200 plays unreal 2003 with worldtextures cranked and looks sweat. antiliasing kills my benchmark though by about 2,000.

I am not sure but I believe that if you want to do VID in as well as out you are going to have to go with the ti4600. I run an Asus 4600 and love it to death...i can over clock the crap outa it ( 327/675) and it doesnt skip a beat! There doesn't apear to be any cooling for the RAM on that card either, though I don't know how important that is.

Well to update this i guess i finally took the poor card over the limits and fried the Ram. though the card never did skip a beat it died :cry: the poor ******* worked well and I am sending this one back. only thing I can think of is the ram on the top side of the card isnt actively cooled just a heat spreader....next card? Dunno...we will see:flames:
