    Thumbs up

    Definitely a big thumbs up. The Leadtek GF4Ti series is excellent.

    Edit - What price are you looking at for that card? If it's much over $200, I'd say spend an extra $100 and get a Radeon 9700 Pro or save $100 and get a GF4Ti4200. Either way would be bettter value for money. If the card is ~<$200 then it's a good buy, IMO.

    HOLY (&^^%*&^)*&(^!!!!

    That is almost twice as much as you should be paying for that card. For example, newegg.com are doing the VIVO version for $243.

    If you have $400 to spend, buy a Radeon 9700 Pro and something nice for the girlfriend/wife or hold onto your cash until the new year when there will a slew of new $399 cards on the horizon.

    MuFu's right man. A Radeon9700 isn't even worth $415 anymore. In fact, it never was over $400.

    Go with the VIVO version that Paul mentioned above, and spend the extra $150 on a new burner, or a better motherboard. Or you could get a better hard drive, or go watercooling...or you could probably do two of those things for $150, depending on how you shop

    the whole line of cards from leadtek in the geforce 4 ti line 4200 and up are all good cards. basically they're the same like any other geforce4 except for the exceptional stock cooling. definitely a plus if you don't feel like messing with the hsf and still want a really nice oc.

    Yeah, that is the VIVO version. Still a rip-off at $419, IMO.

    MuFu.

    Edit - sorry, "only" $416.

    $419 is just plain ridiculous. i'd say if you want that card, i would go with newegg. they're #1 on my list of places to shop. i actually got my new case shipped all the way from newegg in CA to west lafayette, indiana in 1 day. now that is remarkable for fedex express saver!
