Default which GF4 to buy

alright,

I want to buy a GF4, but I'm not sure which to get...
A GF4 Ti4600 costs too much for my budget so it will be a Ti4200 or a Ti4400.
Now this leaves me with several candidates:
*Gainward Ti4200 GS or the Ti4400
*Abit Ti4200
*Leadtek Ti4400
*Asus Ti4400

This will be used on my P4 rig (1.6A + abit BD7II+twinmoss pc2700)
phuture plans: H2O (card + cpu) or Vapo (awaiting my 'vakantiegeld' )
What may I expect more from the Ti4400 in terms of OC'ing and in relation to the Ti4200? Is there a lot of difference between those brands?
I value your oppinions.Thanks in advance...
K.

as far as we have seen now, most ti4200 clock just as far as the ti4400 or even ti4600 so it's of no use buying a more expensive gpu.

if you plan on getting it watercooled, for the cashdifference there is between a ti4200 and ti4600, you can buy a 80W pelt to put on...
Take a guess which will go higher : ti4600 on water, or ti4200 on watercooled pelt... there won't be too much of a difference....

gainward or abit ti4200 all the way, haven't compared too much of the reviews, but I guess gainward roxx in almost all their samples

correct me if I'm wrong Calantak, but haven't you posted a 3Dmark2001 project with a abit Ti4200 that overclocks quit well straight from da box? If so, I'll get me one of these....

nope....
I got me a mx440 abit, just for some fooling around, and that one clocked quite well.
don't know bout the ti4200 but they'll probably be quite good

I thought I read somewhere (was it hardocp?) that the gainward Ti4200 can be oc'ed to speeds above (!) the default speed of the Ti4600 cards.

Is there any way to overcome the limit on overclocking the gainward ti4200?

Sure, there is: just use 3dr party utilities like rivatuner or NVmax....
