if i were you, i would go get a geforce 4 ti 4400 ( NOT 4600) turns out their the most bang for your buck and can even surpass 4600's if you OC it.. and it cost like i think 100 bucks less.

take the rest of the money and go get something else with it.

I would've advised you to get a GF4 Ti 4200 and save the cash till better ones come out (since you can't use their power right now anyways), but the Ti 4400 is a SWEET card, and also worth its money.

IMO, there's no way around a GF4 Ti series vid card at the moment.

Have fun with it!!!

i would have recommended the gainward, but remember that if u do oc ur card it will most likely void ur warrenty.
