    i plan to buy a new graphic card...

    my budget is about 290 Euros... that are 290 $...

    which card would you recommend...

    msi 4600 with vid in/out ... retail 290 euros

    pny 4600 vid out.. retail 280 euros

    which one of these is faster .. (i don't care about the software bundle or support)

    i'm a gamer so gaming performance is important :D


    plz help :)

    well, they're both the same speed... not sure which one will overclock better though... for that i would go with the pny...

    Man, I have a PNY Ti4200 64mb, and the gpu overheats at 295....i know that not all cards are the same. But I would go with the MSI

    MSI actually makes the Ti4600s for PNY, so you'd think they would overclock the same. But on general the PNYs do better. Plus they have purple PCBs :cool:

    Re: vid in or not

    you could watch, record, and edit tv, video casettes, dvds, video discs, another computer, any camcorder... pretty much anything with a video and audio out...

    thanks for all your help

    i will go for the msi card...
    ... because the pny card doesn't seem to have vid in ..?!


    290 bucks.. well thats a lot of money, but this card will stay with me 1-2 years.. then i'm looking out for "geforce revolution" or something from ati .. who knows :)

    i will post some benchs here soon :cool:

    Not expensive at all compared to pricing here in greece where the cheapest Ti 4600 is over 380 euro.

    You may also look at the TRIPLEX Silver ti 4600 but im not sure of the price in the rest of the world....lol

    Triplex millenium 4600
    No tv out but the best 4600 in production.

    TAKE A LOOK AT THIS BABY


    ONE word....OUCH !!!

    But i think its out of your price range....about 450 $

    Hey, I have the Triplex Ti 4600. It's nice stuff for sure :) Oh well... just posting to confirm that it's a reliable card, regardless of the fact that Triplex is a not-so-famous company. I got mine for USD $211

    tisk- tisk - tisk

    if this helps you answers the question.. the way i understand it you can over clock a bare card more than a feature loaded VID in/out or it will bench higher its a trade off.. a little profomane for some cool vid in/out ... what you gotta ask is will i really need use these features???
