So far I have seen geforce4 ti4200 vs the radeon 9700....big price difference between the two but the 4200 seems reasonably priced, radeon on the other hand was like 400 bucks...
get yourself the card I use, the GF4 TI4400. It has 128ddr, dual display, and many have Vivo. The performance difference between 4400 and 4600 is marginal, but the price is only $188us! Besides, most 4400's overclock to 4600 speed anyway so you might as well get the cheaper one.
GF4 TI4200 I don't like because not all of them have 128ddr, and the ones that do often have slower speed memory
R9700 is an amazing card, but the price is outrageous, and some people are reporting various issues that make me kind nervous to buy.
heres a GF4 TI4400 with everything, except video-in, for only $187.95us
