not a bad company, but not a great on either in terms of breaking records or winning awards. They make alot of Nvidia stuff, I bought a TnT2/m64 32mb card that was a Jaton version and it was great for what it was, had no problems with it and drivers weren't a big deal. Just used the Nvidia.com ones and everything was fine.
If you want one to play games, I think that is a very dencent price for a Ti4200. :D

They made their name with 9 dollar components many years ago, mostly selling out of Tiger Systems cataloges. They define the name "generic". If you get a super cheap generic "mom and pop shop" built clone, you'll often find Jaton products.

Granted many vid cards now are reference designs, with the main chipsets made by someone like nVidia, ATI, etc.

I had used them for generics. I stopped a while back when I installed some boards with mismarked RAM.... I was not sure how they would fair with "higher" end boards.

thanks for the input,
