That card scored the best in this article of 11 4200's tested here the link 4200 Showdown
I think im going to get the MSI it came in third behind the leadtek and the asus, I found it for 160 shipped would get the leadtek
but i would have to pay tax on it sux that neweggs in calif, i get stuff fast but I have to pay tax so it kinda kills their good prices for me
I'm really still undecided on getting a 4200 or a 8500 I dont game much but i do alot of video capturing and watching tv on my comp
so i really want the card the gives me the best display
Why pay $169 when you can get a 64meg Chaintech 4200 card for $130? I had that card for a few days to test out, and it was ocing just as well, 300/600. All geforces are pretty similiar anyways, why pay extra just for the brandname....and the extra 64meg of ram, which doesn't really increase performance that much.
the extra 64MB makes a huge difference when you have larger textures, especially in video and graphic editing. Also, I won't have to upgrade when for Unreal 2003 because of the 80MB textures!! heheheheh! w00t!
I got it today, wooohoo!
can't wait to put this in my computer!
I put it in my computer, sloppily installed the drivers, and OH MY GOD EVERYTHING IS SOOOO FAST AND the 2d on my monitor was MUCH BETTER than my old geforce 256ddr. Also, the card is very solid. My other comp has some generic ti4200, but man this card is GREAT! I think it consumes too much power for my Antec 303X 300watt power supply. Anyone care to purchase it for say $35 shipped?
