Folks,

I am looking at buying myself a GF4 ti4200 in the very near future and am currently scouring reviews and the like to to figure out which one I should be looking for. Based on this, I have a couple of questions.

First of all, all the reviews I have read seem to suggest that teh 64mb card is quicker than the 128mb card. Can anyone explain this to me?

Also, any suggestions as to which card I should look for? I might possibly stretch to a 4400 if its worth it but im not sure.

any help would be gratefully recieved.

James.

The reason why the 64meg cards are faster than the 128meg cards is that the Nvidia reference designs use faster mem on the 64meg version. I don't know why this is the case, but there are some deviating designs that have different memory clocking.

The fastest Ti4200 card I know of is the Triplex Millinium Silver 64meg. It has 3.3ns memory and mine is an excellent overclocker. It sells for about $180 if you can find it in the US. The only US vendor I know of is OCsystem. :Q

I also have an MSI Ti4400 card. It's one of the cheaper Ti4400 cards (app $225), it has VIVO and all of the necessary software and it OC's to about 312/640. The thing that concerns me about it though is that the ram chips are BURNING hot to the touch. By far the hottest component in the system.

get the gainward 128mb 4200 golden sample, and use the enhanced mode software setting to overclock it to almost the same clock speed as the 4400.....runs everything i throw at it flawlessly.......only paid like 190 for it from newegg about a month ago....love the card

I have heard that the Abit Ti4200 cards are good overclockers and at a great deal too. Check out a few reviews on Ti4200 cards from users at Newegg and then pick one up.

I have the Abit 64meg Ti4200 and got it to 300/600 no problems with stock cooling. It could probly go even higher with some additional cooling but I can be bothered as its performance is way better then i expected.
