lol, to the dude who said that the Ti4200 cant manage 4600 speeds, all these review sites that i've been reading must be lying then? i think not.

I was told the MSI G4 Ti4200 is quite noisy.
Can anyone confirm this -or the contrary- ?
I just installed my MSIGf4Ti4200 a couple of days ago... I actually had to physically check and make sure the fan was on... I couldn't hear it at all. That was tested without my 3x80mm fans, my power supply fan, and a Thermaltake Volcano7+ running... with those on, noise from a VGA cooler doesn't really matter to me anymore anyway If a fan is too loud, turn up the sound! Or spend hundreds on watercooling. I just crank it

Hmmm...well, i won't find myself worthy to comment on the quality of this card, even though MSI seem to be praised quite a lot lately.

As for buying it...

try this:

http://store.yahoo.com/cyberpowerwholesale/components-video-card.html

The buyXtremegear.com seems to be some sort of a sale site for cyberpower.com. Both are owned by Yahoo.

On xtremegear I found the MSI GEFORCE-4 MX440 64MB DDR for 92.40$, while at the same time on cyberpower it costs 122.43$

Don't get confused by the sites looking completely identical to one another apart from the links and the title. Yahoo is weird.

cheers,
Milan

Dudes, i have bought myself a nice MSI Ti4200 64MB to replace my GF2MX with it.

My machine has little casecooling (2x15cfm intake and the same for exhaust - 15cfm as in "enermax 80mm @ lowest rpm").

I overclock easy to a nice 320/620 without any glitches whatsoever !

I ran a full 3D Mark 2001 SE test with the overclocked values, and he didnt even faint.

So ppl, due the nice cooler on the core, you can oc the core easily to Ti4600 speeds, or even higher.

That is imo ofcourse !

And btw, I also thought to get some nice ViVo capabilities with my card, but I only have a TV-out, no -IN. But still, for that price, i cant complain.

actually i have my MSI G4Ti4200 128MB clocked at 270 core and 540 memory without additional cooling (ok, my case is open...) No problems so far (after 3hours of quake3 or whatsoever)

but maybe I am lucky and others not

Lopey: Actually, since you can increase the core speed to 300+ (over the stock 250) and many cards have hit 520+ for memory, you can easily overtake the 4400 (core stock 275).

The MSI G4Ti4200 does't have VIVO capabilities.
It uses the Philips 7104 tv chip, and not the Philips 7108 from the MSIG4Ti4600 model. The later is the one that has VIVO capabilities, the former only has tv-out.

When overclocked this card actually performs better than a TI4600 at low res but the 64MB of DDR starts to give out at high res. The 128MB version should be better in this case and should overclock nicely given it starts at 444Mhz + ~120Mhz OC = 564Mhz. Thats about a TI4400! All that and still $200 less!!!
Actually, the problem with all the 128 meg ti4200s are that they use lower quality 4 ns ram... Why else would they underclock them to 444 mhz as default? From what I've seen and heard, you won't get more than 515 with the 128 meg version of this card... Not that that's bad or anything... it's still not ti4400 material yet...

Anyway, that's my 2 cents...

It's a cool card, I just can't seem to get mine to engage into full screen mode...

I notice the Ti4200 you have has VIVO but here in Malaysia the cable is not included. There is only a video out cable. Where can I get one? Your review was superb BTW. I want one!!
