Default BFG Ti4600 RMA

I wonder if they gonna send me the same model or a better/newer GPU type of card to replace my dying/dead Ti4600. My real question is do they still make the Ti4600 (at least to replace any RMAs they may get)?

Dont get your hopes up too high because you will most likely get back a refurbed Ti4600 but let us know if they send you something better.

they'll prob. send u a 6600gt or 6800nu i'd say. It'll be pretty hard to find a 4600 die these days.

I will jump so high my head will hit the ceiling and the impact will kill me instantly and then my living will will send one of you guys my card instead! Hehehehe....just kidding. Back to reality, yeah, it will be nice if I get a newer/more updated GPU card.

The ti4600 was $400 back in the day right? If that's the case, then if you do recieve a newer generation card from BFG, it could be a fx5900ultra or a 6800gt. Hopefuly it's the latter.

If they still have them, you'll likely get an FX 5900 XT. That's a heck of an upgrade over a Ti4600. I'd be really surprised if you got anything better than that.

Yeap, that card used to cost $399, then $299 (which was when I actually bought it), so I hope BFG is kind enough to send me an updated GPU video card. That'll be the greatest thing I would receive, ever!

Oh, UPS delivered my RMA on Wed, so it should be early next week when I willl receive my replacement (assuming the words of the guy on the phone are true).

It would still be an upgrade, provided they didn't send one with TurboCache. MikeC did a (p)review of the 6200. It should give you an idea of how it will perform.
