    I want to buy a new videocard but i only have a budget of 200 euro. About 200 dollar US. What is a good option for me?

    Have a look around at the GF4 Ti4200's as they should be in your range plus most o/c to near GF4 Ti4600 speeds. ;)

    I found a ti4200 64mb from MSi for 209 euro. And a ti4200 128mb Msi for 239 euro. Will there be a huge difference in speed between the two?

    the 128 mb version will most likely be better in teh long term...especially if u play games liek doom 3:cheers:

    Some 64MB ones use faster memory and get higher o/c's but with games gettin' more graphical with their textures the 128MB would be better. Also have a look for the Leadtek brand of it as here they're much cheaper than the MSI ones. ;)

    I picked up a Powercolor GF4Ti4200 128MB for $265cdn (~$US170) - Powercolor doesn't have the greatest rep. but this seems to be a solid card - OC's to 275/550 w/stock cooling - on a very warm day. No Vi - but it has S-Video out & DVI out...if that's important to you.
