    Hi Dudes

    I have been doing quite a fair bit of reading in the past few days in regards to the Ti4200 line and have created a poll for you guys because I'm curious to see why you guys vote for and why.

    Should be really interesting and happy voting guys.... :)

    Well I don't have one myself but I voted on the Leadtek version of the TI4200. I voted on it mainly becuase of its MASSIVE heatsink that they have on there cards. That definitly brings more potential cause it has better cooling. That is stock though becaseu you can always mod a different version that has a sucko heatsink.

    You missed a few cards, but that's not important.

    From what I've heard, the Leadtek and Gainward cards are very good performers / OC'ers

    Do you guys know how fast is the RAM they use for the 64MB and the 128MB version of the Leaktek cards because that also plays a major role in terms of overclocking, correct?

    actually, I was thinking along the lines of MSI, and some of the not-so-popular names like Jaton. :)

    It is true that the 64mb cards use slightly faster ram than the 128mb ones, but I went with a 128mb card because I think many games in the near future will benefit more from the extra ram. I think that all of the new features we will see in the new game engines (such as realtime dynamic lighting and shadows) will require a lot of ram. I am using a Gainward Golden sample because of the overclockability. I believe that Gainward really does cull the best parts for their Golden Sample cards just like (real) premium ram is made from the best parts. I also believe that part quality is a more important factor for oc'ing that things like heatsink size. You can put a big, impressive radiator in front of a six-banger, but that won't make it run like a V8.
